Human Relations in School Settings.
Oden, Chester W., Jr.; Mac Donald, W. Scott
One of 52 theoretical papers on school crime and its relation to poverty, this chapter discusses experiences in the Human Relations Program at the University of Minnesota. The program has developed from one that offers undergraduate and graduate courses in human relations to one that also responds to requests from community agencies other than the schools for service, consultation, and evaluation. The broad range of concerns in the program includes examination of discrimination in laws, traditions, and practices of institutional racism, and how discriminatory attitudes affect both victims and members of the dominant group. The concern in this paper is focused on the attitudes and biases of teachers and how they influence current practices in the classroom and elsewhere in the school. (Author/MLF)
