Summary of Activities and Evaluation of Western Alabama Cooperative Title IV Project: A Desegregation Program Occasioned by and Relative to Teacher Crossover.
Tuscaloosa County Board of Education, Tuscaloosa, AL.
The Western Alabama Cooperative Project attempted to develop better self-concepts, communication skills, classroom management techniques, and knowledge of multi-racial educational methods and materials among teachers and educators; the intent was to facilitate school desegregation. The program consisted of lectures and discussion groups. The program was evaluated by questionnaires given before and after, in order to determine changes in attitudes. It is concluded that the project was at least a partial success. Self concepts improved, especially for black teachers. Where the results are unclear, it appears that administrators made less spectacular gains; however, more lines of communication were opened up. (Author/JW)
