RESEARCH SEMINAR ON RACIAL AND OTHER ISSUES AFFECTING SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION IN THE GREAT CITIES OF AMERICA.
USDAN, MICHAEL D.
RACIAL STRIFE, POPULATION MOBILITY, CHRONIC UNEMPLOYMENT, URBAN DECAY, AND OTHER CURRENT ISSUES WHICH AFFECT THE EDUCATIONAL PROCESSES OF LARGE CITIES WERE DELINEATED IN A SEMINAR TO PROVIDE WORKABLE PROPOSALS, GREATER COMMUNICATION, AND UNDERSTANDING AMONG SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS WHO MUST DEAL WITH THESE PROBLEMS IN THEIR DAY-BY-DAY OPERATIONS. AMONG THE PARTICIPANTS IN THE SEMINAR WERE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS, REPRESENTATIVES FROM INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION, AND MEMBERS FROM OTHER EDUCATIONAL AGENCIES AND ORGANIZATIONS. A TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLASSIFICATION SCHEME WAS DEVELOPED FOR ALL RESEARCH PROPOSALS. THE FIRST DIMENSION SIGNIFIED THE LEVELS WITHIN A SCHOOL ORGANIZATION WITH WHICH A PARTICULAR RESEARCH PROGRAM MIGHT DEAL (I.E., TECHNICAL, MANAGERIAL, AND INSTITUTIONAL). THE SECOND SUMMARIZED THE CATEGORIES OF RESEARCH, RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, AND DEVELOPMENT AS MEANS TO ORIENT AND DIRECT A RESEARCH PROGRAM. IT WAS NOTED THAT PARTICIPATING SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS TENDED TO EMPHASIZE DEVELOPMENTAL PROPOSALS AT A LOWER ADMINISTRATIVE LEVEL THAN DID THE UNIVERSITY PEOPLE WHO MOST OFTEN PREFERRED RESEARCH PROPOSALS. BOTH GROUPS EXPRESSED INTEREST IN A VARIETY OF PROBLEMS, BUT DIFFERENCES IN APPROACH REMAINED LARGELY UNRESOLVED. THE MOST IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION OF THE SEMINAR WAS BELIEVED TO BE A FIRM REALIZATION OF THE NEED FOR INCREASED DIALOGUE AND COMMUNICATION BETWEEN RESEARCHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS. (JH)
