Report of the Special Institute on School Desegregation: An Institute to Help Educators Maximize Educational Opportunity, August 2-13, 1965.
Levine, Daniel U.
The primary objectives of the Institute were defined as (1) helping school officials understand the historical background and the social-psychological context of conditions resulting in educational disadvantage and the relation between these forces and desegregation problems in the schools, (2) helping individuals responsible for the content of instruction in the classroom study and consider special approaches to meet the education needs of minority-group youngsters, and (3) helping educators find ways of working with students in desegregated classrooms so as to improve the human relationships in such classrooms. The eighty-two participants, fifth-three of whom were classroom teachers, were encouraged, through background questionnaires and consultations with the Institute staff, to identify specific objectives unique to their particular situations. The training phase took place from August 2, 1965 to August 13, 1965, consisting of a daily lecture and question period along with study groups. The follow-up phase began immediately after the training, and ended January 31, 1966. (Author)
