Ways to Improve Education in Desegregated Schools (WIEDS). Executive Summary of Final Report, 1978-1979.
King, A. L.
The Ways to Improve Education in Desegregated Schools (WIEDS) project's purposes have been to develop an information base of successful desegregation/integration strategies and to construct a set of models and guidelines for use by schools in planning staff development activities. To these ends, a study was conducted to assess staff development programs, inservice education programs, and other strategies for improving education in desegregated schools. Programs were analyzed in terms of planning, preparation, implementation, application, and evaluation. Officials from the school districts' central offices, school principals, teachers, students, and parents and community members were interviewed. This report summarizes the literature review, interview findings, survey results, and methodological discussion contained in the original study. Based on survey and interview data, the report concludes that desegregation problems can be dealt with through more effective staff development efforts. (APM)
