Encouraging Diversity in an Era of Rescission.
Bailey, Jerry D.; And Others
This paper describes the programs at the University of Kansas (UK) School of Education to encourage diversity. The TRIO programs, which include a regular Upward Bound program, an Upward Bound Math and Science Center, an Educational Talent Search, and a McNair Scholars Program, report to the associate dean for teacher education and play a key role in the School of Education's mission. Other programs include the Kansas Governor's Academy, a month-long summer institute targeted at Kansas high school rising juniors who have been identified as at-risk by their districts; the Gateway Center, a project designed to serve as a model for restructuring the State's early childhood education licensure policies (it lost its federal funding during its second year of operation); and the National Youth Sports Program, a project to provide summer "day camps" for students from communities with large numbers of low income children. A conclusion discusses how structural and policy changes at the state and university levels are also affecting these diversity efforts. (Contains a chart of equity programs at UK School of Education and eight references.) (JB)
