Conference on Community and Family Services for the Educational Rehabilitation of Disadvantaged Youth, Conference Proceedings (New York, June 15-16, 1967).
Yeshiva Univ., New York, NY. Ferkauf Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
This conference report contains a summary of the proceedings and the text of two papers. The paper by Gertrude S. Goldberg, "Research Issues Evoked by the Moynihan Report," presents the critical response to that report and notes the issues raised by it. She discusses the alleged pathology of the Negro family, the relationship between family patterns and educational achievement, and the "case for national action." The address by James A. Jones, "Cultural Deprivation: Some Second Thoughts," describes some findings of a HARYOU study of the central Harlem community. The major focus of his paper was the motivation for education among poor families. A preliminary analysis (1967) of the HARYOU data shows that poor families in central Harlem and the middle class in general share similar values about education. (NH)
