An Approach to Low Rent Public Housing Tenant Education in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Allen, Van Sizar
Structured around the supposition that merely moving families from substandard housing into modern low rent apartments or houses was not enough to bring about the necessary changes in attitudes and living practices, this study examined the educational considerations provided to beneficiaries of low income public housing at the national level through the Greensboro Redevelopment Commission and the Greensboro Public Housing Authority, and some 20 selected public housing authorities in other parts of the United States. The objective of the study included among other goals: the determining of felt and unfelt needs of the relocatees; identifying such needs as to their educational, economic, sociological and/or physical origins; determining relocatees' interest and involving the various service agencies in meeting such needs; improving the delivery of services by service agencies to relocatees, developing indigenous leadership in the low rent public housing community. The study determined that some education must accompany the relocation of families from substandard housing communities into new low public housing communities if maximum benefits are to be realized. Fifty families participated in the questionnaire survey. (Author/PT)
