Dynamics of Deprivation and Educational Implications -- Some Hypotheses and Impressions. An Interdisciplinary Sensorium Report.
Singh, S. P.
The present report on the sensorium includes the general format, hypotheses, procedures, and contributions of the participants. For the purpose of the study, different sets of variables, hypotheses and procedures were chosen. The variables included the collective and overall perceptions of individuals representing various academic disciplines. It is hypothesized that professionals representing various disciplines related to the problems of deprivation as perceived here would substantiate a number of points -- that the syndrome of deprivation and disadvantagement is universal and affects all in general and greater in specific groups of individuals within a given time and space, and that stylistic features displayed by individuals under deprived conditions are universal. Issues discussed in sensorium are: labeling, types of learning; disadvantaged children; teaching styles and methodologies; effect of the schools on children; language/linguistics; community; school relevancy; segregation/integration; children's growth and development; dominance theory in sociology change within the schools; the ideal school; homogeneous/heterogeneous school groupings; observation of the child; evaluation of the child; evaluation of school programs; teacher preparation and behavior; and survival and institution.
