Invitational Conference on Educating the Disadvantaged in Rural and Urban Settings (Proceedings, August 6, 1969).
Goff, Eva Harriet, Ed.
The purpose of this Invitational Conference on Educating the Disadvantaged in Rural and Urban Settings, held under the sponsorship of the Division of Education at Geneseo, was to identify the common educational problems of the disadvantaged in both rural and urban settings in order to facilitate action on the educational, administrative, and legislative fronts. Educational, administrative, and legislative leaders in New York State and at the national level were invited to participate along with graduate students and workshop participants. The conference's focus was set on "The People" by the keynoter, Father T. Weider. Representatives of legislation and of administration at the national and state levels provided both background and projections about the problems of education of disadvantaged from their particular vantage points. During the afternoon session, the conferees met in six separate groups to discuss various issues. After meeting for about an hour and a half, everyone reassembled to hear the reports from each group. The conference concluded with a statement of reaction by Roy Edelfelt. (JM)
