EDUCATING THE CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED, A MATURING APPROACH.
FOWLER, WILLIAM L.
THIS REPORT BRIEFLY REVIEWS TRENDS IN 20TH-CENTURY RESEARCH ON EDUCATING DISADVANTAGED AND MINORITY GROUP PUPILS. MANY STUDIES WRITTEN IN THE 1920'S AND 1930'S INDICATED THAT NEGROES WERE LESS INTELLIGENT THAN CAUCASIANS, AND THUS TEACHERS DEMANDED LITTLE OF THEIR MINORITY GROUP PUPILS. SINCE THAT TIME RESEARCH STUDIES HAVE EMPHASIZED THE INFLUENCE OF ENVIRONMENT AND EARLY LEARNING EXPERIENCES UPON THE CHILD'S COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT. SOME EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE DISADVANTAGED, AMONG WHICH ARE THE EARLY TRAINING PROJECT IN MURFREESBORO, TENNESSEE, THE BANNEKER SCHOOL PROJECT IN ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, AND THE HIGHER HORIZONS PROGRAM IN NEW YORK CITY. AFFECTING PUPILS IN PRESCHOOL THROUGH JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL GRADES, THESE PROGRAMS REFLECT THE CURRENT BELIEF THAT PUPIL ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE MAY BE ENHANCED THROUGH EDUCATIONAL INTERVENTION. (LB)
