Summer Institute of Psychological-Sociological Problems of School Desegration; 80 School Administrators, Supervisors, Principals and Teachers in Ten Florida Counties. Final Report.
Taylor, Joseph H.
A six-week biracial summer institute for school personnel and a follow-up one-day symposium were devoted to increasing understanding of problems accompanying desegregation, changes in race relations patterns, and ways of solving psychological-sociological problems posed by desegregation. Another concern was to develop acceptance and understanding of the aspirations of Negro youth and the role of segregation in thwarting their hopes. The participants recommended a clinical-diagnostic and individualized approach in teaching, with guidance services provided. Home visits by teachers are particularly important for disadvantaged Negro students entering formerly all-white schools, to train children and families to care for property and develop "proper" values, and to take pride in home, school, and community. Positive administrative leadership is also needed. (NH)
