Educating the Disadvantaged: School Year 1968-1969. Volume 1, Part 1; Volume 1, Part 2.
Ornstein, Allan C., Ed.
This yearbook is a compilation of journal and magazine articles with an interdisciplinary approach toward the problem of educating the disadvantaged. The readings are considered as supplementary reference material designed for professors, school administrators, civil rights workers, and other interested investigators who often lack sufficient time to keep up with existing and proliferating literature on the disadvantaged. The organization of the readings is in five parts: "Socio-psychological factors affecting the disadvantaged," focusing on self perceptions, psychological motivation, personality influences, early education, and intelligence measurement; "Perspective for teaching the disadvantaged," including teaching methods and techniques, and discipline improvement; "Race and the nature of the urban setting," pertaining to racialism, riots, poverty, separatism, and the future of the ghetto; "Race and equal educational opportunity," dealing with school desegregation, equal education, busing problems, compensatory education, and family income levels; and, "Urban school organization and change," relating to community control, educational parks, teacher strikes, private schooling, and a case-study of the Ocean Hill-Brownsville conflict.
