WHO WINS THE GAME, SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS FOR THE DISADVANTAGED.
HAUBRICH, VERNON F.
THE BACKGROUND OF THE FAILURE OF RURAL AND URBAN SLUM SCHOOLS TO PROVIDE SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS FOR DISADVANTAGED YOUTH IS REVIEWED. A DISCUSSION OF THE SOCIAL-PSYCHOLOGICAL CONDITIONS FOR SUCCESSFUL EFFORTS SHOWS THE IMPORTANCE OF THE INVOLVEMENT OF THE TEACHER, THE PARENT, AND THE COMMUNITY IN THESE PROGRAMS. IT IS FELT THAT ACTIVE TEACHER PARTICIPATION PRESUMES AN OPEN-MINDED AND FLEXIBLE ATTITUDE, WHICH MUST BE SUPPORTED BY ADMINISTRATIVE ENCOURAGEMENT. PROGRAM OBJECTIVES MUST BE CLEARLY DEFINED WITH A MANAGEABLE FOCUS, AND THE EDUCATIONAL POWER STRUCTURE MUST BE PROVIDED WITH EVALUATION AND INFORMATION IN ORDER TO GAIN SUPPORT FOR THE INSTITUTIONALIZATION OF PROGRAMS. A "TYPOLOGY OF SUCCESS" WITH TWO MAJOR AREAS OF DEVELOPMENT--PROGRAM AND PRECEDURES--IS OFFERED. CRITERIA FOR THE PROGRAM ASPECT SHOULD IDENTIFY THE TARGET POPULATION AND THE APPROPRIATE INSTRUCTIONAL DIVISION WHILE PROCEDURAL CRITERIA SHOULD INDICATE WHAT MATERIALS SHOULD BE USED. SOME EXAMPLES FROM EXPERIENCE WITH THE PRESERVICE PREPARATION OF TEACHERS IN DEPRESSED AREAS IN NEW YORK CITY SCHOOLS ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE TITLE I SUMMER 1966 WORKSHOP FOR DETROIT PUBLIC SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION AT MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY. IT IS TO BE PUBLISHED IN A CHAPTER IN "THE METROPOLITAN SCHOOL SYSTEM AND THE UNIVERSITY--A PATTERN FOR PARTNERSHIP," HERBERT C. RUDMAN (ED.), COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY. (NH)
