Operation Upgrade: An In-Service Training Program to Supplement the Development of a Curriculum for the Multi-Racial Schools in New York City to the End That Intergroup Relations May Be Improved.
Lloyd, Helene M.
An inservice training program was conducted by the New York City Board of Education in a school district in the South Bronx section of the city with an ethnic minority pupil population of 68 percent. The objectives were to improve intergroup relations, to help teachers to respond positively to problems posed by desegregation, and to gain parent and community support of the schools. Participants in the eleven orientation and sensitivity workshop sessions were 110 administrators, supervisors, teachers, parents, and college seniors who were prospective teachers in slum schools. Consultants and Board of Education workshop production specialists gave lectures and led small-group interaction sessions. It is felt that the results of this program were "inspiring." The document lists the staff, describes the process of selecting participants, and includes a summary of the final evaluative questionnaire. (NH)
