Problems in School Desegregation: Two Summer Institutes for School Leaders.
Myers, Robert B.
The objectives of the program were to assist 24 teams averaging five leaders per team to plan the strategy and procedures of desegregation in their school systems. This was accomplished by being briefed on the provisions of the Civil Rights Bill, by analyzing the problems incident to desegregation in their own school system, and by formulating plans for the orderly desegregation of their schools. The participants were provided with theoretical exploration to increase their understandings of communication, leadership, formation and reconstruction of attitudes, analysis of the nature of prejudice, curricular implications of desegregation, instructional implications of desegregation, and school organization. The training phases were from June 14-July 2, 1965 and from July 12-July 30, 1965. A follow-up phase began August 1, 1965 and ended July 31, 1966. [For 1966 report, see ED 028 229.] (Author)
