Changes in Opinions of Professional Staff in Schools Experiencing Rapid Integration.
Daniels, Lorraine Morrison
The problem was to conduct a sequel study in the Ribault attendance area of Duval County Jacksonville, Florida. The original study was conducted by a group in 1971. Specifically the study was made to identify changes that had occurred in the opinions of teachers, principals, deans, curriculum coordinators, and counselors since the 1971 study. Primary attention was focused on changes that had occurred concerning race relations, school-community relations, curriculum and instruction, and procedures attributed to the changes. Staff members were selected for interviews from the 12 schools previously studied by the Education Professions Development Team in 1971. The schools were located in an area that was changing rapidly from predominantly white to predominantly black. Data were collected from 70 participants (30 elementary school teachers, 30 secondary school teachers, 4 principals, 2 deans, 1 curriculum assistant, and 3 counselors). The participants were asked to: (1) describe changes in behavior of students, teachers, parents, and other persons concerning race relations; (2) describe changes in curriculum and instruction; and, (3) describe changes in school-community relations. The data were analyzed to determine if there were certain opinions peculiar to eliminate teachers, secondary teachers, and administrators. (Author/JM)
