The Minneapolis Public School Administrators' Workshop Conference on Integration: St. John's University, August 16-18, 1972. An Evaluation.
Faunce, R. W.; And Others
"Humanizing our schools--preparation for development of integrated environments for learning" was the theme of this workshop conference for more than 250 Minneapolis Public School administrators. The goals of the conference were open communications on the topic of desegregation, discussions relevant to this topic, active involvement of participants, and the acquisition of useful knowledge about steps to be taken toward integration. The conference was evaluated by use of a questionnaire distributed to all participants who attended the closing session (n = 225). A total of 200 questionnaires were returned. The questions were related to the goals of the conference plus three additional questions related to the reactions of the participants to presentations made by consultants, conference arrangements and facilities, with the final question designed to determine if reaction to the conference was related to participant characteristics, e.g., experience, sex, race, etc. The questionnaire data showed that the conference made moderate progress toward its goals. The greatest differences in response to program activities occurred between black and white administrators; these differences were variable. A number of differences were also noted between male and female reactions, but these were directed more at conference facilities than program content. The percent participants' responses are provided in relation to each of the questions. (DB)
