Participation of the Black Community in Selected Aspects of the Educational Institution of Newark, 1958-1972. Final Report.
Phillips, W. M., Jr.; And Others
This document is the final report of a two-year study of the interdependency of race and education in Newark, New Jersey. The report is organized into sections describing how the research was performed and presents the results on a set of topics defined as central for providing a useful understanding of the complex interrelationships of race and education. Three purposes were in mind in designing this study. First, there was the fundamental curiosity to discover the changing nature of participation by the black community of Newark in the creation and implementation of public educational policy. This general purpose was transformed into an empirical description and analysis of black involvement in selected aspects of the educational institution. A second base purpose was to develop an interpretative understanding of the changes which occurred in the areas of race and education. The intent was to develop a model of change that made sense of the events exprienced by the researchers, as well as permitting some degree of prediction. The third basic purpose was to gain systematic insights that have applied significance for those concerned with revitalization of the black community and in the improvement of the educational institution in Newark.
