Project: Ways to Improve Education in Desegregated Schools (WIEDS). [Appendices for Final Report.]
Roberson, Don R.; And Others
This document consists of a literature review and the description of a field study undertaken as part of a pilot research project focusing on improving education in desegregated public schools. The review documents the organization and successful programmatic strategies of school integration. Findings are presented in terms of administrative and governance considerations, staff development considerations, and teaching/learning considerations. An extensive bibliography is included. A field study which investigated successful integration strategies used by selected school districts in Texas is detailed. Historic, demographic, and legal factors are outlined. Interviews conducted during the field study indicate that successful desegregation strategies fall into four major areas: (1) support; (2) human relations training; (3) academic skill development; and (4) social skill development. The field study also examined the extent to which students and staff of different ethnic groups learned to accept and value ethnic diversity within the Austin schools. (Author/AM)
