Special Training Institute on School Desegregation for School Personnel in South Carolina, 1968-1969.
South Carolina Univ., Columbia. School of Education.
The overall objective of this Institute is to improve the ability of school personnel on all levels to recognize and deal effectively with special problems occasioned by school desegregation. Large group institutes of two to ten days for teachers, administrators, supervisors, and guidance personnel are offered. Local leaders are encouraged to participate in planning, organizing and carrying out these institutes which help educators focus on basic problems of human relations, resource materials, grouping, evaluation, and scheduling. In some cases, extended institutes devoted to specific problem areas may be conducted over several months. School districts are encouraged to take a comprehensive approach to desegregation involving school personnel, the total community, and students. To help districts carry out this task, leadership Planning Institutes: (1) provide an opportunity for educators of both races to engage in genuine dialogue in order to open an honest exchange of ideas and expressions of feeling which will sensitize the leadership group to problems incident to integration; (2) prepare participants to take an active, leadership role in future institutes for other school personnel in the district; and, (3) prepare local leaders who can work with students and the total community.
