The Bryant-Anthony-Ramsey (B-A-R) Project: An Evaluation. Report C-73-2.
Mueller, Mildred K.
The Bryant-Anthony-Ramsey (B-A-R) Project is a desegregation/integration project aimed at assuring a smooth transition from a predominately segregated school environment to a desegregated or integrated environment. The Bryant, Anthony, and Ramsey Junior High Schools are participants in a desegregation effort that is one part of an overall desegregation plan of the Minneapolis Public Schools. These schools (B-A-R) are involved in a unique plan involving the redrawing of attendance areas and the restructuring of age group patterns. The project is a community involvement project with these objectives: developing community awareness, fostering support for the project, developing support for desegregation, teaching skills to persons interested in desegregation and/or community involvement, and reducing racism. The evaluation was conducted by means of questionnaires, visits, observations, and interviews. The groups involved included the B-A-R Advisory Committee, B-A-R student groups, school staffs, workshops participants, and people who attended B-A-R community meetings. It was recommended that the project continue its efforts in 1974-75. (RC)
