In-Service Education of Teachers in Multi-Racial Areas. An Evaluation of Current Practice.
Community Relations Commission, London (England).
This booklet contains information about what is happening in the field of in-service training in a multi-racial society in England at the present time, as gathered by means of discussions with teachers and with those concerned with the provision of courses. A rationale for in-service training in the context of the under-achievement of children from minority ethnic groups is provided. There is also a discussion of four basic ideas agreed upon by the discussants to represent the range of present provisions: those of diversity, school oriented courses, training trainers, and resources. The booklet is also said to provide some evaluation of the differing purposes and influences of the various courses which have taken place through a presentation of five case studies. A need for diversity of provision within in-service training, and clarification of purpose and implication of each type of course are among the needs identified by the conclusions. Seven recommendations, among which is the need for interaction between school management and total staff, are made. Appendices include those on resources, the extent of the inquiry, statistical distribution of immigrants, and course programs. (Author/AM)
