A Survey of Inservice Desegregation Workshops.
Mosley, Doris Y.; Flaxman, Erwin
The description and evaluation of the ESEA Title IV desegregation workshops in this survey is the product of analysis of reports found in the ERIC system and in the document collections of the ERIC Information Retrieval Center on the Disadvantaged and the National Center for Research and Information on Equal Educational Opportunity. Of the more than 300 reports available, constituting the most complete record of inservice attempts to deal with the educational problems of school desegregation, 80 were used to produce data using a computer-programming process for data analysis. A workshop was considered "positive,""typical," or "negative" depending on how it met such criteria as: realistic objectives; carefully articulated planning procedures; participant input into the planning; clear and appropriate program design; full evaluation revealing participant reactions; consistency among objectives, design, and evaluation; planning or implementation for followup; and, planning and implementation for disseminating outcomes and materials. The 80 selected programs comprised 36 positive, 25 typical, and 19 negative programs. Findings included the following: most of the workshops were sponsored by universities; permanent workshop staff ranged between five to ten university personnel; and, the most popular areas of content were racial-cultural understanding, interpersonal-desegregation and general interpersonal relationships, and racial-cultural curriculum innovation.
