Identification of Effective Staff Development/Inservice Education Strategies to Integrate Desegregated Schools.
King, A. L.; Galindo, Letticia
This study examined strategies perceived by school and community representatives as effective in integrating desegregated schools; that is, improving race relations and fostering an atmosphere for equal educational opportunity. The effectiveness of school desegregation strategies and demographic and historical factors of the community are examined. Data were collected from interviews with school administrators and personnel, students, parents, and other community representatives. Complementary data were provided by a written survey and a review of desegregation literature. Based on interpretations of these data, recommendations for designing and implementing effective staff development/inservice education programs for desegregated/desesegregating schools are offered. The recommended content areas for these programs are the following: (1) evaluation and use of multicultural materials; (2) evaluation and use of bilingual materials; (3) communications skills; (4) cultural awareness; (5) ethnic linguistic patterns; (6) classroom management; (7) disciplinary skills; (8) values clarification; (9) multicultural curriculum development; (10) bilingual curriculum development; (11) integration through extracurricular activities; (12) school-home cooperation approaches and techniques; and (13) motivational skills.
