The Community Schools Movement in Compton City. Final Report.
This report reveals the results of studies made of three groups actively seeking community participation in school affairs in a city noted for its conservative school system. The study utilized participant observation supplemented by interviews and document analysis. Each group had only 15-30 active members and no broad base in the community. All three groups were created by the "establishment" and were dependent on government and/or foundation money for their existence. Like the community action agencies of OEO, these groups are training a new cadre of leadership among minorities in this city. The main accomplishment of the community groups has been a recognition of their rights to exist and to exert some real influence on educational policy. (Author/JF)
