Chesler, Mark; And Others
In 1970, the Western Regional School Desegregation Projects (WRSDP) was requested by the Association of California Intergroup Relations Educators (ACIRE) and the Bureau of Intergroup Relations (BIR), California Department of Education to prepare a training program for intergroup educators in the Western region served by the Health, Education, and Welfare Office of Equal Educational Opportunity, the program being planned jointly by the Information Dissemination Module of WRSDP and the University of California, Riverside, University Extension. The program was structured as an extension credit course: Theory and Practice in Implementing Change to Achieve Integration of Schools. Community Resources Ltd., Ann Arbor, Mich. (CRL), developed and presented the program, the training sessions running from April through November, 1971. Twenty-four school districts in California, Nevada, and Arizona participated in the training sessions. Evaluation and documentation was conducted by WRSDP and CRL, both informally during the training sessions, and formally by structured and open-ended questionnaires. The triad of volumes of the full report, of which this booklet is Volume 1, capsulate the activities of those who attended the training sessions. The four chapters of Volume 1 focus on project purpose and design, issues, problem identification, and clarification of values. For Volumes 2 and 3 of the report, see UD 012 833 and UD 012 834 respectively. (RJ)
