An Evaluation of the Northeast Louisiana Consortium to Investigate and Find Solutions to Problems Attendant to School Desegregation.
Northeast Louisiana Univ., Monroe.
The institute evaluated in this report, approved and funded through Title IV of the Civil Rights Act, was planned to accommodate 120 participants representing four school systems located in Northeast Louisiana. These school systems had been involved in the desegregation of faculty and students. The total student population of the four school systems is approximately 48,900 and the teaching and administrative staff is approximately 2,150. The 120 participants were selected at the parish and/or system level. Problems around which the Consortium activities would focus were identified through a series of meetings with personnel from Northeast Louisiana University, representatives from the Educational Resource Center in New Orleans, the U.S. Office of Education's Regional Office in Dallas, and representatives from the four school systems. The program was designed to facilitate changes in the attitudes and behavior of the participants. It was hoped these changes would be reflected in greater understanding of problems at the school or system level and would promote a heightening of educational quality. (Author/JM)
