Improving Ethnic Balance and Intergroup Relations; An Advisory Report to the Board of Education, New Haven Unified School District.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Bureau of Intergroup Relations.
Using the findings of a field study and an analysis of school data, this report describes the ethnic and racial distribution of students in the New Haven (California) Unified School District and discusses the availability of educational opportunities and proper intergroup relations for minority-group students. Also, the report examines plant utilization, school-community relations, curriculum and instruction, indications of unequal opportunities, and students' participation in cocurricular activities; makes recommendations for broad policy changes in staff recruitment and training to bring about greater sensitivity to the needs of the students; and proposes a specific plan for improving racial balance in the schools.
