Product Evaluation of the Inservice Training Component of the Detroit Desegregation Court Order.
The goal of the Inservice Training Component of the Detroit (Michigan) school desegregation plan was to improve the effectiveness of school staff in meeting educational needs. The program consisted of inservice education workshops focused on four areas: human relations; teacher expectations; ethnic and racial awareness; and crisis prevention and intervention. The Inservice Training Component was evaluated using the results of four annual surveys of school staff at all levels and of middle and high school students conducted in 1977, 1978, 1979, and 1980. Findings indicated that progress was made toward most of the six objectives of the component which included: (1) student racial relations; (2) relations between instructional staff and students; (3) racial relations among staff members; (4) teacher treatment of black and white students; (5) knowledge of racial-ethnic groups; and (6) ability to prevent disruptive classroom behavior and resolve conflicts.
