Ohio State Civil Rights Commission, Columbus. Dept. of Education and Community Relations.
The survey reported here focuses on ascertaining if the preparation of teachers and administrators is adequate to meet the needs of minority and disadvantaged pupils, especially in urban schools. A survey was made of the 53 Ohio colleges of education through a questionnaire. Responses were received from 40 teacher training institutions in the State. The first question dealt with the specific training of the instructional staff in urban studies. Responses are interpreted as indicating the need for special studies and first-hand experiences in working with minorities and the disadvantaged. The number of years of teaching experience the faculty has had in urban schools with minority students was sought in the second question. Experiences of faculty beyond that of formal education was sought in the third question. The fourth question inquired into the areas of study concerning urban education required of educational students. The focus of the fifth question was on the specific training in urban education required of all prospective teachers, while the sixth question focused on the courses pertaining to minorities required of all students. The use of outside resources on urban and minority education was covered in question seven. Seven other questions were included in the questionnaire. (Author/JM)
