Following a huge influx of African-Americans and Puerto Ricans into New York City in the postwar period and after more than a decade of half-hearted and wholly unsuccessful efforts by the immovable New York City Board of Education (NYCBOE) to desegregate the city's massive public school system, poor and working-class parents of colour and community activists across the city began after 1966 to shift their focus and actively fight for community control of neighborhood schools.
According to one of the recruitment officials, the NYCBOE has recruited some 1,000 teachers from the entire Caribbean region over the past two years, with Jamaica providing the majority.
The Pennsylvania Board of Elections examined the system on July 11, 1990, and rejected it for a number of reasons, including the fact that it "can be placed inadvertently in a mode in which the voter is unable to vote for certain candidates" and it "reports straight-party votes in a bizarre and inconsistent manner." When this was brought to the attention of NYCBOE, they replied by stating "the vendor has admitted to us that release 2.04 of their software used in the Pennsylvania certification process had just been modified and that it was a mistake to have used it even in a certification demonstration." Needless to say, the machines have not yet received certification in Pennsylvania.
