New Strategies in Educational Planning and Research Involving Ethnic Minority Communities.
Obradovic, Sylvia M.
The planning of research and other programs in isolation from a concerned community arouses the following concerns in the latter: research on what problems, under whose direction, for whose benefit, and toward what ultimate goal? New models for educational planning and research into which collaboration between the researcher and community at all stages is built must be elaborated. The community advisory committee is one strategy which involves community people in program planning in the role of consultants. The charrette strategy requires a majority representation on a committee of groups residing within the community who are the clients and community leadership direction of a multi-disciplinary group of academic and professional experts. Together they intensely study community problems in an open public forum to achieve creative solutions. A third type of strategy involves the coming together of researchers and community people at the initiative of the latter with the intent of working cooperatively using the resources of both groups to accomplish community oriented goals. Professional analytic and grass roots relational thinking are both needed to deal effectively with community problems.
