Education and the Disadvantaged, Proceedings of a Conference on the Disadvantaged (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, June 8-9, 1967).
Goldman, Harvey, Ed.
This conference report is made up of six papers and related commentaries on the nature of disadvantagement and its implications. Most participants were from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area. Small group meetings and discussions followed each of the papers. The opening paper, "Education and the Disadvantaged" (E. Melby), examined a broad range of problems facing the educational establishment. The other papers, more limited in scope, discussed only one aspect of the broad issue of disadvantagement. They are--"The Legal Responsibilities of Public Schools for Dealing With Minority Group Members" (R. Carter), "In-Service Training for Teachers of the Disadvantaged" (J. Tanner), "Deviancy and the Disadvantaged" (W. Wattenberg), and "Curriculum for the Disadvantaged" (G. Whipple). A paper by H. Goldman which emerged from the conference, and which is included in this volume, examines the essentially middle-class and female-dominated nature of the schools. (DK)
