Michigan-Ohio Regional Educational Lab., Inc., Detroit.
This review of research on racism and education comprises sixteen program topics selected by the Michigan-Ohio Regional Educational Laboratory. The introductory section carries 33 items (after Berelson and Steiner, 1964) described as general findings from behavioral science research which appeared four years before the Kerner Commission Report. The topics dealt with are: (1) Changing attitudes of students and teachers, which includes: improvement of Negro self-concept, achievement motivation, confrontation approaches, and teacher attitudes and expectations; (2) Curriculum and materials; (3) Decreasing racial isolation, consisting of: improvement of Negro self-concept, achievement motivation, desegregation, and staff deployment by race; (4) Compensatory education; (5) School working with other agencies, comprised of: decentralized lay board of education, other approaches, and pre-service teacher education; (6) Administrative practices; (7) Teacher education, treated in the two parts: pre-service education recommendations, and in-service education recommendations. Fifteen attitude scales and questionnaires are listed as significant evaluation instruments met with in the literature. (RJ)
