Ohio Education Association, Columbus. Instruction and Professional Development Div.; National Education Association, Washington, DC.
It is recommended that a human relations program should address itself to developing understanding and acceptance of oneself and others by relating to others on the basis of their dignity and worth. Its primary goals should be: (1) to develop an awareness on the part of educators and students to the need for honest and open expression; (2) to emphasize team problem-solving where intergroup tensions exist; and (3) to develop a crisis prevention mechanism before problems reach crisis proportions. As suggested guidelines for such a program, the document also discusses: (1) considerations in organizing a local human relations committee; (2) a suggested format for local workshops; (3) acceptable human relations strategies; (4) suggestions for creating positive self-images in children; (5) guidelines for effective intergroup relations; (6) a suggested calendar for a local human relations program; and (7) definitions of human relations concepts.
