Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Educational Research. Final Report.
Coleman, James S.
This postdoctoral fellowship program involved the following three phases: 1) systematic instruction in the sociology of complex organizations with particular emphasis on the organizational analysis of schools and schooling; 2) systematic instruction in multivariate regression approaches to non-experimental research with particular emphasis on techniques designed to facilitate casual interences from non-experimental data; and 3) an extensive internship drawing upon the competencies of both educators and sociologists in designing a conceptual framework for considering the impact of the social and organizational context of schools upon their inputs, outputs, and input-output relationships. It included formal course work, much additional reading, and active participation in two seminars. The program will culminate in 1972 with the publication of a research monograph which will apply both sophisticated sociological theory and research methodology to an examination of school inputs, outputs, and structures in terms of the sociocultural environments in which they are located.
