Culture of Schools. Final Report. Volume I.
American Anthropological Association, Washington, DC.
The first volume of this 4-volume report presents the basic rationale for an anthropological and cross-cultural approach to education, abstracts of 14 research projects sponsored by the American Anthropological Association, a proposal for the establishment of a Research Center for Anthropology and Education to be coordinated by the Association, a summary of the contents of the four volumes, a report on a bibliography on anthropology and education compiled by the Association and available from the Library of Congress, and the first part of a report on the Conference on the Culture of Schools held at Greystone, New York, in 1966. (The second half of the Greystone conference report appears in Vol. II, SP 003 901.) Representative titles of the 14 research projects include: "A Study in Organizational Interaction Between an Evening College and Its Parent Institution;""The Natural History of the Education of the Deprived Negro Child in School, Family and Peer Cultures;""Some Aspects of Socialization Through Formal Schooling Relating Primarily to Civic and Moral Education;" and "The Secondary School System in the Netherlands; Some Social Consequences of Streaming." The Greystone conference report indicates that participants felt that research should be done in the areas of teacher training institutions, socialization aspects in segregated schools, and comparative studies of schools within several types of communities.
