Educational Leadership for the Black Community: A Practioner's View.
Sizemore, Barbara A.
The concept of educational leadership in the black community has undergone some change since the advent of community control and decentralization. Educational administration must now encompass the social process of the local social system. In the Woodlawn locality of Chicago, (one of the ten poorest Chicago communities), the Woodlawn Experimental Schools Project (WESP) was instituted to restructure the social system through a mutuality of effort for the improvement of achievement. Decisions and policy were to be made by The Woodlawn Community Board (TWCB), comprised of members from the University of Chicago, Chicago Board of Education, and from The Woodlawn Organization. TWCB will use a WESP model to hopefully provide the vehicle for decision-making power of the black community residents of Woodlawn in the educational institution. This model for group mobility emerged because an earlier individual mobility model failed. Black community leadership, therefore turns to the aggregation model as an alternative, which will assess reality in terms of the local social system, choose the most effective goals and objectives, and widen their finite set of knowledge to include a multitude of alternatives.
