Interim Report of the Institute for Supervisors of Student Teachers on Problems Occasioned by Desegregation on Public Schools, July 6 Through August 12, 1965.
Powell, James H.; And Others
Forty-four prospective supervising teachers from public schools in Kentucky, cooperating in the student teaching programs of colleges and universities, participated in this Institute funded under Title IV of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The objectives were to provide participants with a basic experience in human relations in an inter-racial setting; this would expand their knowledge and understanding, needed to work effectively in a desegregated school setting. Further, special problems confronting supervising teachers as they guide student teachers, who are presently in or will subsequently join integrated faculties of desegregated schools, were identified and analyzed. In an attempt to create a candid, open, and honest atmosphere for interpersonal interactions, heavy emphasis was placed on relatively unstructured group discussions. Public school personnel with experience in desegregated schools discussed the problems they had faced and the solutions that had emerged. Among the many results and conclusions was the consensus that participants became more skillful and comfortable in interracial discussions of social and educational problems. (JM)
