School Desegregation and Cultural Pluralism: Perspectives on Progress. Selected Presentations of the 1974-75 STRIDE Workshops.
Far West Lab. for Educational Research and Development, San Francisco, CA.
The STRIDE (Service, Training, and Research in Desegregated Education) program, designed to assist school districts in the process of desegregation, was established by the U.S. Office of Education under Title IV of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. During 1974-75, a series of regional conferences was held in Arizona, California, and Nevada. Topics of critical importance were presented, discussed, and evaluated in a number of conferences entitled: Workshop on Community Relations; Cultural Pluralism: A Solution for the Seventies; Content Analysis of Print Materials for Multicultural Suitability; and Administrative Strategies for Pluralistic Education. Nine of the papers presented at the regional conferences are included in this book: perspectives on the developing concept of pluralism in education; the role of educational institutions in promoting cultural pluralism; various stages in the transition from segregation to cultural pluralism; four paper addressing the concerns of ethnic groups in terms of pluralistic education; views on the educational implications of locus of control; and practical ways of working through conflicts by use of a mutually agreed on conflict resolution model.
