The objectives of the Institute were to improve the educational programs offered to all children in the Richmond Public Schools, and to assist staff members in broadening their self-concepts in relation to co-workers, various sub-cultures, and the environment in which they teach. Thirty-one different groups were involved during 1965-1966; each had an instructor selected for their competence in a subject area. The program centered around six content areas: Communication; Development of Future Leaders; Leadership Development; Reading Improvement; Social Science; and, Speech Improvement. Also included is a Final Report concerned additionally with the employment of "Advisory Specialists", a team of urban experts to help prevent resegregation and to recruit competent personnel for desegregated faculties. [Seven pages of copyrighted material, "News clippings on the Urban Team Report," have been deleted from the 1968 report section of the document.] (Author/CB)
