Intervening in School Desegregation Conflicts: The Role of the Monitor.
Laue, James H.; Monti, Daniel J.
Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change, v3 1980
The authors examine the role of the school desegregation monitor and various types of monitoring bodies as a special case of the broader phenomenon of community conflict intervention. Monitoring school desegregation is defined as a process in which designated individuals collect data on a school system (through observation, documents, and interviews), analyze and evaluate the data, and report to an authorizing body on the content and quality of the system's efforts to comply with that body's standards for desegregation. The paper discusses monitoring as a technique for intervention in community conflict, delineates advantages and disadvantages of several types of monitoring, and examines monitoring activities in two school systems, one urban and one suburban. Implications for social policy and intervention strategies are discussed. (Author/MK)
