A COMMITTEE REPORT BASED ON STAFF DISCUSSIONS FOLLOWING A SERIES OF LECTURES ON HUMAN RELATIONS AND THE CULTURALLY DEPRIVED.
Springfield Public Schools, MA.
SUCCESS FOR THE CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED IS IMPROBABLE BECAUSE OF SEVERAL FACTORS - POOR SELF-IMAGE, BACKGROUND AND VALUES ALIEN TO SCHOOL STANDARDS, LOW ASPIRATIONS (BY MIDDLE-CLASS STANDARDS), AND INDIFFERENT PARENTS AND/OR UNSTABLE HOME CONDITIONS. SOME OF THE PROGRAMS ALREADY ESTABLISHED TO COMBAT THESE PROBLEMS ARE NEW YORK'S "HIGHER HORIZONS," NEW YORK STATE'S "PROJECT ABLE," AND BOSTON'S "ACTION FOR BOSTON'S COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT (ABCD PROJECT)." SPECIFIC SUGGESTIONS ARE OFFERED FOR DEVELOPING AN AWARENESS OF HUMAN RELATIONS AND THE CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED. THESE SUGGESTIONS ARE DIVIDED INTO IMMEDIATE, MEDIAL, AND LONG-RANGE. IMMEDIATE SUGGESTIONS INVOLVE TEACHER-PUPIL RELATIONS, PUBLICITY MATERIALS, AND SUPPLIES. MEDIAL SUGGESTIONS INVOLVE RESOURCE PEOPLE, SUPPLIES, AND MATERIALS. LONG-RANGE SUGGESTIONS INVOLVE PARENT EDUCATION, ADMINISTRATION, GUIDANCE AND CURRICULUM. THE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDS SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMS AND TEACHER WORKSHOPS.
