Modern Education and Better Human Relations. Freedom Pamphlets.
Kilpatrick, William H.
This 1957 pamphlet discusses bias against minority groups, discriminatory attitudes and acts, and the need to replace discrimination with better human relations. In this context, the role of schools, and of education in general, in teaching positive intergroup relations is defined. The modern concept of education emphasizes "living" what is to be learned and helping the child to grow "gradually into the fulness of individual and social living." Specifically, the goals should be learning to live together, acceptance by parents and teachers of these goals, teaching children anti-discriminatory behaviors, intercultural understanding, and self examination of prejudice. For older students, study of the psychology of race and of the rationalizations which support racism is recommended. (NH)
