"Educational Improvement in Majority Negro School Districts in Seventeen Southern and Border States" (AERA Symposium, Los Angeles, 1969).
Hall, Morrill M.; And Others
The symposium presented at the 1969 American Educational Research Association meeting was concerned with program development for rural isolated school districts and the opportunities for research opened through this project for educational improvement. The papers from the symposium describe an on-going program which can have great influence in improving the quality of education in majority Negro districts, and, hopefully, in all school districts. The papers presented are: 1) "A Coordinated Approach to Improving Educational Opportunities in Majority Negro School Districts" by Richard L. Fairley; 2) "Affective Dimensions of Teaching of Disadvantaged Children in Six Majority Negro School Districts" by William F. White; 3) "Administrative Challenges in Improving Educational Opportunities in 242 Majority Negro School Districts" by Ray E. Bruce; 4) "A Sociological Perspective on Rural Disadvantages in Education" by George W. Wallis; 5) "Curriculum Change and Majority Negro Districts" by Charles K. Franzen; and 6) "An Approach to Comprehensive Planning for Accelerating Educational Improvement in Rural Isolated School Systems of the Southeast" by Wiley S. Bolden. (DK)
