Racism and American Education: A Dialogue and Agenda for Action.
Howe, Harold; And Others
As a part of the responsibilities of the President's Commission for the Observation of Human Rights Year, a small group of diverse specialists was called together in 1968 to explore the role of education in combating racial discrimination. An agenda for action was prepared (using the education section of the Kerner Report) and used as a basis for the dialogue between members. This comprises the major portion of the report. In Part I, the discussion covers the following: "Racism and the Structure of American Schools"; "Competitive Systems and Structural Change"; "Class, Race, Separatism, and Integration"; "Ignorance and Identity"; "Black Studies"; "Black and White Colleges"; "Race and Teacher Training"; "Teacher Performance"; "Teachers Unions"; "Educational Rigidities"; and,"Changing the Climate of Prejudice." Part II contains the Agenda for action including twenty specific action recommendations: (1) to effect attitudinal changes; (2) to bring about structural and attitudinal changes; and, (3) to bring about changes designed to improve the quality of education.
