NEW DIRECTIONS IN SCHOOL-COMMUNITY RELATIONS. AN ADDRESS DELIVERED TO THE GREAT CITIES SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT WORKSHOP, AUGUST 29, 1960, DETROIT, MICHIGAN.
MCCLUSKY, HOWARD
IN AN ADDRESS DELIVERED TO A WORKSHOP IN THE GREAT CITIES PROJECT, IT WAS NOTED THAT SCHOOL PERSONNEL SHOULD DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO RESEARCH THE PROBLEM OF IN-MIGRATION. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT, AS A KEY TO MIGRATION AND CHANGING NEIGHBORHOODS, A CUMULATIVE RECORD FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND SCHOOL DISTRICT BE KEPT. THERE IS A NEED FOR TEACHERS TO LIVE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND IDENTIFY WITH ITS RESIDENTS IF AN INCREASE IN NEIGHBORHOOD-SCHOOL INTERACTION IS TO OCCUR. TEACHING AND ADMINISTRATIVE STAFFS SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE COMMUNITY, NEIGHBORHOOD AND STYLE OF LIFE IN THE EVENT THEY WISH TO ADAPT THE CURRICULUM OR HAVE A SERIES OF CONFERENCES. CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES OF LIFE HAVE NOT PRODUCED FORCES WHICH LEAD TO THE DIGNITY OF MAN, AND EDUCATION MUST TRY TO BRING ABOUT AN EQUAL CHANCE FOR ALL. CURRICULUM SHOULD BE ADAPTED WITH MORE PICTORIAL VOCABULARY PROBLEMS, AND MATERIALS AND EXPERIENCES SHOULD BE INCLUDED WHICH CALL FOR VARIOUS TYPES OF MOTOR AND SOCIAL ACTIVITY. SCHOOL IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN SOCIETY FOR THE WELFARE OF THE CHILD, AND THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IS THE NEAREST THING TO A NEIGHBORHOOD FOCUS IN METROPOLITAN PLANNING. SCHOOLS IN FLINT, MICHIGAN, WHICH ARE USED THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, ARE DISCUSSED.
