Increasing Compatibility in Desegregated Schools Between Elementary Educational Practices, the Curriculum, and the Concept of Whiteness.
Steelman, Cecile A.; Murphy, Mervyn J.
In the late spring of 1972, the Human Relations Department of the San Francisco Unified School District held a series of five ethnic workshops designed to aid the district in the implementation of racial desegregation. The function of this paper is to develop an "itemized and categorized" analysis of one of the five workshops. This summary was prepared from notes on four lectures presented by Dr. Dan Dodson under a grant from the Emergency School Assistance Program. The workshop upon which this paper is based was divided into four sessions. The content of the workshop can be divided into the following major topics: (1) The city as a socializing institution and its humanization through social encounter; (2) the traditional role of the public schools; (3) new educational concepts; (4) the legitimation of the authority of the schools; (5) desegregated education; and, (6) implications for educators. A section entitled "Research Notes" provides a sociological perspective on such terms as power, educational bureaucracy, and power structure. (Author/JM)
