PROGRAM ON PROBLEMS OF SCHOOL DESEGREGATION. FINAL TECHNICAL REPORT.
HOLTON, BETTY GENE
THE STAFF OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA SCHOOL DESEGREGATION PROGRAM, FUNDED UNDER TITLE IV OF THE 1964 CIVIL RIGHTS ACT, DEVELOPED AN INSERVICE TRAINING SERIES FOR TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS. THE 14 3-HOUR TRAINING SESSIONS CONSISTED OF TALKS BY INVITED EDUCATIONAL CONSULTANTS, SMALL GROUP SESSIONS, AND A GENERAL ASSEMBLY PERIOD. AFTER THE SERIES THE PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS, WHO HAD ALSO RECEIVED LEADERSHIP TRAINING, WERE EXPECTED TO INITIATE SOME TYPE OF INSERVICE TRAINING FOLLOWUP ACTIVITY RELEVANT TO THE SPECIAL PROBLEMS ENGENDERED BY SCHOOL SEGREGATION AND DESEGREGATION. AN EVALUATION TEAM CONDUCTED A CONTINUOUS SURVEY EVALUATION OF THE PROGRAM AND ITS PARTICIPANTS. IN GENERAL, THE FIRST YEAR'S PARTICIPANTS REPORTED THAT THEY HAD BENEFITED FROM THE PROGRAM, AND THERE WAS"CONSIDERABLE EVIDENCE" THAT THEY WOULD FUNCTION AS RESOURCE PERSONNEL DURING THE REORGANIZATION OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. OTHER ACTIVITIES CONDUCTED BY THE SCHOOL DESEGREGATION PROGRAM INCLUDED INVESTIGATIONS OF INCIDENTS IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS INVOLVING RACIAL CONFLICT, AND PLANNING FOR THE RACIAL INTEGRATION OF PUBLIC SCHOOL FACULTY AND STUDENTS.
