Emergency School Aid Act, 1980-81 Evaluation Report.
Stubbs, Judith E.
This is a report on the Positive Human Interaction Project (PHI) implemented under the Emergency School Aid Act in the Metropolitan Nashville (Tennessee) school system during 1980-81. The report describes the PHI centers set up in thirteen project schools to prevent resegregation in desegregated schools by encouraging interaction activities among children of different racial and socioeconomic backgrounds, improving student behavior, and enhancing student, faculty, parent, and community involvement in the program. Included in the report are statements of program objectives; descriptions of activities designed to accomplish objectives; and evaluation of the extent to which objectives were met in terms of teacher assessments and observations, parents' comments, and ratings of target students' progress on individual goals. Also described are the functions and roles of PHI resource specialists, community teachers, and staff teachers. (Author/MJL)
