Field Research and Development of Materials for 1968 National Conference of School Board Members Serving City and Rural Communities, North and South.
Moore, Ronnie M.
This document summarizes the preparations made by the Scholarship, Education and Defense Fund for Racial Equality (SEDFRE) for a January 1969 National Conference of Black School Board Members. A brief introductory section overviews the four-month planning period, which developed broad Conference objectives (helping Negro members better understand school problems and equipping them with such skills as strategy planning to improve education for minority group students) and particularized those objectives on the basis of questionnaire responses from prospective participants. The questionnaire and an analysis of 12 replies appear in appendix B. The two remaining appendixes, comprising the major portion of the document, contain minutes of the two planning committee meetings, a Conference prospectus and detailed draft curriculum, and a case-study training exercise ("Change Comes to Trenton Schools in 1968") to be used by Conference leaders to instruct school board members in factfinding, procedure, and strategy and to encourage their collaboration with community activists on objectives. SP 002 711 is a related document. (LP)
