Planning Educational Change: Volume 3, Integrating the Desegregated School--A Review.
Gordon, Edmund W.; Miller, Julia Wang
"Planning Educational Change: Vol. III, Integrating the Desegregated School," by Chesler, Jorgensen, and Erenberg is reviewed in this issue of the "NCRIEEO Newsletter." The book in question tries to provide teachers and administrators with methods for improving race relations in desegregated schools. Some of the techniques suggested include role playing for students, sensitivity sessions for teachers, and diagnosis of school sentiment through the use of questionnaires. The reviewers suggest that discussion of basic issues might enhance educators' understanding of the problems involved in school desegregation. Also discussed are organizational strategies for planning desegregation such as pairing, school closing, open enrollment, and educational parks. In conclusion, the reviewers note that the requirement for the proper utilization of the ideas in "Planning Educational Change" is a commitment to work toward the achievement of a racially integrated society. This issue of the "NCRIEEO Newsletter" also lists recent works (documents as well as journal articles) on equal educational opportunity. For the book reviewed, see ED 042 071. (JW)
