A Final Program Report from Louisville Public Schools and the University of Louisville 1971-1974.
Louisville Univ., KY. School of Education.; Midwest Center/Consortium for Planned Change in Pupil Personnel Programs for Urban Schools, Bloomington, IN.; Louisville Public Schools, KY.
As part of the Midwest Center/Consortium for Planned Change, the University of Louisville School of Education and the Louisville Public Schools designed a program for the training of a "new professional" to help alleviate problems of inner-city students. Main goals of the program were: (1) to improve the competence of pupil personnel workers by helping them understand the culture, value system, and community standards of the clients being served, and help them improve their skills in consulting with parents; (2) to increase the effectiveness of the pupil personnel staff by providing an opportunity for personal growth and development through group interaction experiences; (3) to develop an effective model for the operation of a Pupil Personnel Team in individual schools; (4) to develop a model for the resolution of staff and administrative problems; and (5) to redefine the role of counselors, whereby they become consultants to teachers as well as counselors to students. Parents of students were actively involved in the program. Pupil personnel workers enrolled in the university to take courses and participated in several workshops organized to realize the goals stated. Most of the major goals of the program were realized.
