The Effects of a Career Education Curriculum on the Racial Attitudes of Kindergarten Children.
Kliman, Deborah S.; Peterson, Georgia F.
In an effort to foster more positive attitudes toward black people in 5-year-old white children, a career education curriculum was designed to give children positive experiences with black adults. The constructs supporting the curriculum are discussed, and the results of using the curriculum are described. No measurable changes in the children's racial preferences or role perceptions were evident. The implications and limitations of the study are discussed. (Author/SB)
