Utilizing Community Resources to Implement School Desegregation. A Guidebook.
Bash, James H.; Morris, Thomas J.
This booklet was prepared to assist school administrators in cooperating with community groups to develop support for school desegregation plans. Actual experiences of Southern school administrators in implementing desegregation plans provide the basis for the guidelines. The variety of approaches, procedures, techniques, and steps which have been used effectively provide the basis for suggestions and cautions. The specific topics included in the discussion are formal and informal power structures, informal advisory committees, school staff, community agencies, national organizations, local independent support groups, and news media. It is emphasized that the quality of the relationship of the school to the community is determined in large measure by the extent of effective interaction achieved between the two. (HW)
