Educational Leadership and Multiracial Schools.
Green, Robert L.
Until the schools are desegregated, and children from different racial backgrounds are brought together, we cannot hope for an egalitarian society. In a multiracial school environment, children can be taught to respect the attitudes, values, and life styles of others. However, the schools must not only be desegregated in name only, but there must also be mutual interaction between students of different racial backgrounds. In addition, provided that teachers do not consider minority group children intellectually retarded, these children will profit academically from attending a multiracial school, while white students will not suffer. Teacher attitudes and behavior are also important in dealing with discipline problems in a desegregated school. Educational leaders must be committed both politically and ideologically and use their skills to obtain a nationwide egalitarian multiracial school system. They must recognize that their roles are political as well as educational when it comes to such issues as busing students. If positive steps are taken, educational desegregation will lead to the development of an egalitarian multiracial society. (Author/MC)
