This collection of conference presentations focuses on the relationships among educational environment, academic achievement, and discipline problems, particularly in desegregated schools.

In the second paper, author William Thomas discusses discipline problems and strategies for dealing with these problems. The following presentation by Leonard Beckham focuses on enhancing student self concept and increasing student involvement in their high schools. Safety and security in a desegregated setting is the topic of the fourth paper by Peter Blauvelt. In the fifth paper, Gloria Grantham conducted a community advocacy project for minority group students in New Castle County, Delaware. This paper is followed by a discussion of ways to improve standardized test performance among minority group children. The final paper describes activities carried out with Emergency School Aid Act (ESAA) funds in Charlottesvile, Virginia.
