Relevance and Quality of Education for Minorities: PROJECT DESIGN. Educational Needs, Fresno, 1968, Number 26.
Jones, Wendel P.
The general improvement of educational relevance and quality for minority groups in the Fresno City Unified School District is considered as part of PROJECT DESIGN, funded under ESEA Title III. Selected schools were visited and conferences held with students, teachers, administrators, citizens, and Negro community leaders and parents. The recommendation accorded the highest priority is that educational developments, proposals, and achievements be communicated to the citizenry in general and to its minority population in particular. Other recommendations call for (1) the inclusion of curriculum content of minority cultural and practical contributions to American society, (2) a rapid increase in the number of minority persons in teaching and administrative positions, (3) an expansion of the human relations staff and program, and (4) a program of instruction for parents of minority group children. Related documents are EA 002 841, EA 002 844, and EA 002 845. (MF)
