New York: FPD, 1968. First six issues of the newsletter, 4 to 10 pages each, 8.5x11 inch mimeographed sheets stapled at upper left corner; folded for mailing with penned address and cancelled stamp on back covers, mild wear except for no. 5, which has long closed tear.
Membership overlapped with the Teachers' Freedom Party. A fundraising letter enclosed describes the FPD as "formed to work for community autonomy and to further work for participatory democracy within each community." Much coverage of conflict with the United Federation of Teachers over matters related to community control of schools in Black and Puerto Rican neighborhoods.
