Biographical Note

Dr. Robert Sperber (1929- )1

Robert Irwin Sperber was born on June 15, 1929, to Jacob and Alice Schwartz Sperber in New York. He received his B.A. in History from Western Reserve University in 1951, followed by his Masters of Arts in Childhood Education from Teachers College, Columbia University, and his Education Doctorate in General Administration from the same university in 1957. Sperber married Edith Winter, a kindergarten teacher, in 1958. They had three children: Matthew, Laurence, and Beth. Edith died in 2012.

Early Years (New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania)

Dr. Sperber began his career in education in 1952. In that year, and again from 1954-1956, Sperber taught third, fifth, and eighth grade in Levittown, New York, as well as served as a consultant for foundations and universities, focusing on moral education, school health, teacher education, collaboration, personnel, and community relations. From 1956-1961, Sperber was the Administrative Assistant for the Superintendent of Schools in Plainview, New York, and Westfield, New Jersey.

In 1961, Sperber and his family moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, when he accepted the job of Assistant Superintendent of Personnel for the school system. While in this position, Sperber was responsible for recruiting new teachers. In the midst of the Civil Rights movement in the United States, Sperber desegregated the teaching staff of the Pittsburgh school system under a “conscious preferment” policy to increase the number of African-American teachers in the schools. The community was divided over the decision of the school board, with some community members applauding the school system’s efforts, while others were hostile to the policy. Sperber received a number of letters, both positive and negative, as well as anti-Semitic and hate propaganda, in response to his policy.

Boston Public Schools, Brookline, Massachusetts

In 1964, Sperber accepted the position of Superintendent of Schools for Brookline, Massachusetts. In this role, he hired personnel, created programs, implemented curriculum, and equalized educational opportunities so children from the less affluent schools received the same level of education and resources as those from schools with more resources. More funds were put into instruction and staffing at schools with fewer resources.

Beginning in 1964, Sperber met with various community members in a collaboration that ultimately resulted in the Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity (METCO) inter-district busing program. METCO provided the opportunity for students in Boston to attend suburban school systems.

Sperber also founded the Brookline Early Education Project (BEEP) in 1975, which provided educational, social and medical services to pregnant women. One-third of the 285 families recruited for the project were from the Heath Bromley Housing Project. When these children turned five years old, they were enrolled in Brookline Public Schools through the METCO program. BEEP was heavily evaluated; children were tested in Kindergarten, and second grade and again 25 years later. All studies indicated that early intervention and high quality services made significant impacts on a child’s academic success.

Also during 1975, in a culmination of meetings and collaborations with Margot Strom and William Parsons, the resource book “Facing History and Ourselves” was published by Strom and Parsons. The resource guide provided lesson plans and resources for teachers interested in educating their students about the Holocaust. The goal of the collaboration was to create and organization that would work with teachers on developing curricula about the Holocaust. Sperber served on the Board for many years, assisting Strom and Parsons with fundraising and helping build the organization.

While at Brookline, Sperber was also a statewide coordinator for Vote No on Prop 2 ½, which in 1980 was passed by ballot measure and went into law in 1982. Prop 2 ½ limits property tax increases in Massachusetts by 2.5%.

Sperber also taught courses in administration at Harvard University Graduate School of Education (HGSE) and the International Education Seminar Programs in conjunction with the HGSE, during his tenure as Superintendent in Brookline.

Boston University

In 1982, Sperber retired as Superintendent and began his twenty-year career at Boston University (BU), first as a Special Assistant for Urban Education to President John Silber, and later as a professor of Urban Education. While at BU, Sperber served as co-director of the Boston Leadership Academy (BLA), a project that helped train Boston school personnel in leadership and management roles. In addition, he represented Boston University on the Board of Directors for the Massachusetts Pre-Engineering Program (MassPEP); supervised the Boston High School Scholars Program, a program that provides four-year scholarships for Boston high school graduates to attend BU; and was a member of the management team for the BU/Chelsea Project, coordinating field work training for students, fundraising, teaching, planning for new school buildings, and hiring new administrators for the Chelsea Public School. He retired from BU in 2002.

In addition to his work at BU, Sperber was also the Executive Director of the Boston Higher Education Partnership (BHEP) from 1982 to 1998. A consortium of 28 colleges and universities, BHEP sought to improve the Boston Public Schools through providing grants and scholarships, and collaborating on efforts with a variety of public school committees, the Private Industry Council Education Committee, the Higher Education Information Center Advisory Committee, the ACCESS Advisory and Trustee committees, and the Compact Work Group. The Compact Work Group, which developed out of the Boston Compact, was charged with implementing the Compact’s goals to ultimately increase access to high performing schools.

On October 17, 1998, the Brookline Education Center was renamed the Robert I. Sperber Curriculum Center. The Brookline Foundation also established an award in Sperber’s name, the Robert I. Sperber Fund for Educational Leadership, to be awarded annually to a member of administrative personnel.

Series VII: General, undated, 1964-2010

English
Boxes 27-29.
Arrangement:

Arranged into seven subseries.

Scope and Content:

This series contains information pertaining to a variety of organizations that Dr. Sperber worked with, primarily post-retirement from Boston University, as well as activities he participated in. Several biographies and CVs are in this series. Also included are videocassettes, cassette tapes (many unlabeled) and 8” floppy diskettes. The diskettes have a paper inventory itemizing what is on each diskette, but it is not very detailed. Cassette tapes and a couple of tape reels include Dr. Sperber’s speeches to faculty at Brookline Public Schools. There is also a CD-R of a speech, and two Brookline Access Television DVDs of town meetings. In the oversize box are rolled meeting notes, written during brainstorming sessions on oversized easel paper.
