THE YOUTH CULTURE, THE SCHOOL SYSTEM AND THE SOCIALIZATION COMMUNITY.
LIPPITT, RONALD
THE "SOCIALIZATION COMMUNITY" WAS DEFINED AS THE PROGRAM FOR REARING, EDUCATING, AND ASSIMILATING THE YOUNG INTO A COMMUNITY. PROFESSIONAL LEADERS AND PROGRAM DIRECTORS FROM A VARIETY OF COMMUNITY AGENT CITIES, REPRESENTATIVE OF THE "SOCIALIZATION COMMUNITY," WERE INTERVIEWED. A LACK OF COMMUNICATION OR COORDINATION WAS FOUND EXISTENT AMONG SOCIALIZATION AGENTS, IN THE COMMUNITIES STUDIED, (FLINT, MICHIGAN AND CHICAGO, ILLINOIS), AT THE LEVEL OF DIRECT WORK WITH THE YOUNG. POOR COMMUNICATION EXISTED BETWEEN COLLEAGUES IN SCHOOLS AND AMONG COMMUNITY PROGRAM DIRECTORS. PARENTS WERE CITED AS THE MAJOR CAUSE OF STUDENT MISBEHAVIOR, YET, LITTLE WAS DONE TO INCREASE PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT IN STUDENT PROGRAMS. STUDENTS WERE PRESENTED WITH SEQUENCES OF EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES, WHICH TENDED TO ALIENATE THEM FROM BOTH THE TEACHER AND THE SCHOOL. STUDENTS' JUDGMENTS OF OTHER STUDENTS TENDED TO INCREASE SUCH ALIENATION. SEMINARS AND LABORATORIES FOR YOUTH PROGRAM LEADERS IN THE TWO COMMUNITIES WERE CONDUCTED. A TEACHING CLINIC IN WHICH NEW TECHNIQUES WERE USED RELEVANT TO THE KINDERGARTEN LEVEL WAS ORGANIZED. FAMILY DISCUSSION SESSIONS WERE ORGANIZED. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT "DIAGNOSTIC RESEARCH OF ACTION RESEARCH" WAS THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO ARRIVE AT VALID EDUCATIONAL INNOVATIONS.
