Developing a Sense of Community. A Report on the Master Plan of the Oakland Unified School District. Working Papers.
Over a four-year period from 1971 to 1975, the Oakland (California) School District, with the assistance of the Rockefeller Foundation, made a concerted effort to bring parents, students, organized community interest groups, religious and service organizations, and school staff members into a decision-sharing relationship. The Master Plan Citizens Committee was established to investigate a broad set of issues in the areas of curriculum and instruction, finance, multicultural education, management and administration, buildings and maintenance, and community relations. This publication is a social history of Oakland's Master Plan Citizens Committee. It approaches the committee's work from the perspective of the participants and examines what the experience has meant to them and what they feel the Master Plan effort has meant to the Oakland schools.
