THE ANTIOCH PROGRAM FOR INTERRACIAL EDUCATION--THE FIRST THREE YEARS, 1964-67.
GRAHAM, JEWEL
AS NOTED IN THIS REPORT, THE ANTIOCH PROGRAM FOR INTERRACIAL EDUCATION TESTED THE ASSUMPTION THAT DISADVANTAGED HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WITH A POTENTIAL FOR ACADEMIC WORK WOULD BENEFIT FROM A COLLEGE CAREER AT ANTIOCH AND WOULD ALSO CONTRIBUTE POSITIVELY TO THE COLLEGE. IDENTIFIED BY COMMITTEES IN VARIOUS DEPRESSED AREAS AND ACCEPTED BY RELAXED ADMISSION STANDARDS, THE 50 STUDENTS IN THE PROGRAM WERE EXPECTED TO MEET THE USUAL DEGREE OF REQUIREMENTS. THE REPORT DISCUSSES THE PROGRAM'S PURPOSES, THE SELECTION PROCESS, AND SOME OF THE PREPARATORY EFFORTS WITH STUDENTS LACKING ACADEMIC SKILLS. IT ALSO DESCRIBES THE BACKGROUND OF THE STUDENTS IN TERMS OF RACE, SEX, AGE, FININACIAL NEEDS, SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS, AND SCORES OF ABILITY TESTS. THE MAJOR IMPACT OF THE COLLEGE ON THESE STUDENTS IS SAID TO HAVE BEEN ONE OF "CULTURE SHOCK," WHILE THE EFFECT OF THE GROUP ON THE COLLEGE HAS BEEN "COMPLEX" AND STILL HAS TO BE EVALUATED. THERE IS A NEED FOR FURTHER ANALYSIS OF THE NATURE OF THE SELECTION PROCESS, THE PREDICTIVE FACTORS FOR ADJUSTMENT AND SUCCESS IN THE PROGRAM, THE ROLE OF THE ADMINISTRATION, AND THE DESIRABILITY OF INCLUDING MINORITY GROUPS OTHER THAN NEGROES. IT IS FELT THAT SINCE DATA ARE STILL BEING GATHERED A CONCLUSIVE ANALYSIS OF THE EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM IS PREMATURE. (NH)
