EDUCATION AND THE "GRAY AREAS."
Oakland Unified School District, CA.
THE OUTLINED REPORT ADDRESSES PROBLEMS SUCH AS THE NEGRO SELF-CONCEPT, POPULATION CHANGES IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, UNEMPLOYMENT TRENDS, HOME CONDITIONS, AND THE INCIDENCE OF CRIME IN THE OAKLAND AREA. STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT RECORDS, THE RECRUITMENT OF TEACHERS AND GENERAL STAFF RECRUITMENT ARE ALSO REVIEWED. OAKLAND'S "GRAY AREA" IS INCREASING AT A FAST RATE, AND POSSIBLE PROGRAMS ARE CONSIDERED FOR REVERSING THIS INCREASE. THE RECOMMENDATIONS WHICH HAVE BEEN MADE BY DEUTSCH (OFFER UNGRADED SEQUENCES FOR PUPILS AGED FOUR TO EIGHT AND KEEP THE TEACHER-PUPIL RATIO LOW), RIESSMAN (EMPHASIZE VOCATIONAL USES OF EDUCATION), CONANT (DECENTRALIZE ADMINISTRATION), MASLOW (REQUIRE THAT MORE BE OFFERED THAN THE LITERAL EQUALITY OF TREATMENT TO ASSURE ACTUAL EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY), AND OTHERS ARE REVIEWED. UNDER A SECTION ENTITLED, "WISHFUL THINKING," SOME SUGGESTIONS PRESENTED WERE--THAT EMPLOYERS AND UNIONS INCREASE THEIR DEGREE OF COOPERATION, THAT PERSONS LIVING IN THE SURBURBS RETAIN AN INTEREST IN THE FUTURE OF THE CITY, THAT EMPHASIS BE GIVEN TO NEGRO ADULT EDUCATION, THAT TEACHERS BE RECRUITED FOR REMEDIAL READING PROGRAMS, THAT HIGHER HORIZONS TYPE OF EXCURSIONS BE ORGANIZED, AND THAT AN EFFORT BE MADE TO INCREASE PARENTAL INTEREST AND INVOLVEMENT IN THE SCHOOLS.
