Special Needs of Negroes: PROJECT DESIGN. Educational Needs, Fresno, 1968, Number 28.
Streets, Virgus Otis
This PROJECT DESIGN report, funded under ESEA Title III, assesses the special learner needs of Negro students and adults. Interviews were conducted with Negro residents of West Fresno as to the educational needs of the Negro population. The interviews focused on the day-to-day operation of the school system in relation to the following societal education standards: command of fundamental processes, worthy home membership, vocation, citizenship, worthy use of leisure, ethical character, and good health. Interviewees included students, parents of students, teachers, administrators, community leaders, men on the street, and persons attending Model Cities and other community meetings. The report concludes that the learner needs of Negro students and adults in Fresno are the result of a cultural-educational deficiencies continuum of generation-to-generation disadvantage among Negroes. Such deficiencies are listed and various courses of school district and community action to alleviate the disadvantage are outlined. Related documents are EA 002 841, EA 002 843, and EA 002 844. (MF)
