INFORMATION RETRIEVAL CENTER ON THE DISADVANTAGED, YESHIVA UNIVERSITY. THE STATUS OF RESEARCH RELATED TO THE EDUCATION OF THE DISADVANTAGED. (TITLE SUPPLIED).
GORDON, EDMUND W.
THIS REVIEW OF RESEARCH NOTES THAT THE EDUCATIONAL HANDICAPS OF THE DISADVANTAGED HAVE NOT BEEN CONCEPTUALIZED ADEQUATELY, IN PART BECAUSE THE DISADVANTAGED MISTAKENLY HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED A HOMOGENEOUS GROUP. SO FAR, THERE HAS BEEN NO STUDY OF THE DIALECTICAL RELATIONSHIP OF THE DISADVANTAGED LEARNER'S COGNITIVE PROCESSES, AFFECTIVE MECHANISMS, AND ACHIEVEMENT SYSTEMS, WHICH TOGETHER MAKE UP THE TEACHER-LEARNING PROCESS. AN ANALYSIS OF STUDIES OF (1) THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN INTELLIGENCE AND SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS OR ETHNICITY, (2) INTELLIGENCE AS AN INTERACTIVE PROCESS, AND (3) THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN INTELLIGENCE AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE, ILLUSTRATES THAT SUCH RESEARCH ON THE STATIC MEASURES OF FUNCTION AND STATUS IS INADEQUATE TO EXPLAIN FULLY THE LEARNING PROBLEMS OF THE DISADVANTAGED. RATHER, PROCESS ANALYSIS AND INTERACTION STUDIES OFFER THE MOST MEANINGFUL PATHS FOR DEVELOPING INTERVENTION PROCEDURES. A SURVEY OF THE WELL-KNOWN RESEARCH ON THE AFFECTIVE DEVELOPMENT OF LOWER-CLASS CHILDREN SHOWS THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT VARIABLES FOR SCHOOL SUCCESS AND UPWARD MOBILITY ARE ATTITUDES TOWARD THE SELF AND THE ENVIRONMENT. HOWEVER, THE DATA ON THE INFLUENCE OF THESE ATTITUDES ARE NOT SO CLEAR AS ON OTHER FACTORS. RESEARCH ON TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS POINTS TO THEIR FAILURE IN TEACHING THE SKILLS OF BEHAVIORAL ANALYSIS AND IN PROVIDING THE MEANS FOR UNDERSTANDING THE NATURE OF THE DISADVANTAGED CHILD. (NH)
