Proposal Presented for Consideration for Funding [for National Center for the Study of Black Family Life.]
Morehouse Coll., Atlanta, GA.
This proposal, presented by Morehouse College for consideration for funding, concerns planning efforts to establish a National Center for the Study of Black Family Life. Ten major objectives to be accomplished by the center through research, education, and practice were established. Attributing the family with having the most important influence on the education and achievement levels reached by its members, the "problems" section notes the dearth of data considered objective and adequate on the black family as an institution. This is further reinstated in the "Family as Educator" section where little research is stated to have been conducted on the black family as an educating agent; or on the traditional, comprehensive education which is said to have been taking place within black families throughout history. A detailed study of the black family as educator of its young is said to be a major work to be carried out within the context of the planning efforts directed toward the establishment of a National Center for the Study of the Black Family. A final section entitled the Black Family as Educator outlines the basic question to be investigated and delineates 14 areas which will be included in focusing on family patterns which are said to influence the educational potential of black children. Five stages for the implementation of planning are outlined in detail. (AM)
