Campus Unrest and Its Resolution in Schools of Changing Ethnic Composition.
Oyler, Robert H.; And Others
This paper describes the setting and history of campus unrest in one California school district which led to the evolution of a new program of interventions. In the period since its introduction, unrest has been settled with a minimum of school disruption and a growing spirit of cooperation and understanding among students, parents, and school staff. That the program is of real value in and of itself is indicated in its use in other school districts. The history of the school's unrest is described, followed by a detailed problem analysis of the program and solution strategies. Also presented is a discussion of positive preventive interventions from the behavioral sciences. The authors conclude that within this case report, the behavioral sciences, especially communication theory and technique, have demonstrated utility in racial and campus unrest. In addition, it was shown that the communications network offers an important alternative to authoritarian forces. (Author/BW)
