Conference Proceedings: Research Dissemination and Training Conference (June 26-27, 1967).
Yeshiva Univ., New York, NY. ERIC Clearinghouse for Urban Disadvantaged.
This conference was conducted to communicate the deliberations of prior conferences to those who are responsible for planning research and allocating funds in the area of the education of the disadvantaged and/or segregated. Major purposes were: (1) to improve communication between investigators working in this field; (2) to stimulate interest in the conduct of research; and (3) to assist junior investigators in related research activities. A number of post conference workshops were organized to provide short-term training sessions focused on particular problem areas, and these are reported in an appendix. The document contains the texts of seven papers of such topics as desegregation research, counseling, family and community factors in educational achievement, bio-social developmental factors, language development, early childhood intervention, and special education. A summary of the proceedings is included. (NH)
