Program Plan for Improved Human Relations, 1970-1971.
Dade County Public Schools, Miami, FL.
Rapid social change has brought with it conflicts which are manifest in the institutions of the community, particularly the school system, which latter has become a focal point for social, political, and judicial action. Mechanisms for problem solving must be established at all levels throughout the school system. A system of communications must be organized to provide for input from and feedback to all concerned groups. The county staff has identified a broad approach and specific application which it is prepared to recommend. In each school the principal and a small group of key personnel identified by the faculty and selected by the principal should be trained to use problem-identification and problem-resolution techniques. The training is to be directed specifically to the needs of the school system. The training should be accomplished through short two- and three-day workshops followed up by periodic single-day sessions. The building of the cadre in each school should take place over an extended period, but it can begin to be a problem solving or reducing mechanism after initial training. The county staff, particularly the Title IV (Civil Rights Act) Human Relations Team, will provide support resources to schools in developing and implementing the cadre approach. (Author/JM)
