Minority Attitudes and Opinions That Have Impacts on Administration of Minority-Oriented Programs.
Franc, Max B.
Impacts of minority attitudes and opinions in preparing young minority entry-administrators for programs in government and business were explored in this paper. Additionally, the close relationships between administrative problems and reported incidents of communication breakdown were discussed. It was noted that minority administrators and young minority people interested in public administration training programs refer to attitudinal differences between themselves and "the establishment". Variables considered included (1) organizational expectations for time management, (2) requirements for other organizing skills, (3) responsibilities and loyalties to organizational goals, (4) requirements for quantitative thinking, and (5) needs for word-oriented rules and regulations. It was further stated that future directions of minority-oriented community organization programs will be influenced by research findings on attitudes and opinions in these areas: (1) relationships between communication and administrative variables in community organization and minority-oriented programs; (2) relative effectiveness of different approaches to prepare minority administrators for community and other programs; (3) effects of "cultural protection" devices in such programs; and (4) desirable programmatic modifications.
