Action for Educational Equity: A Guide for Parents and Members of Community Groups.
Crowfoot, James E.; And Others
This handbook is addressed to parent and citizen groups who are seeking to advance the cause of educational equity. The book includes exercises which call for the reader to apply information and learning to his or her local situation. Individual chapters describe concerns of parents and citizens facing desegregation in their community's schools and suggest how they can form change groups. In addition, a wide variety of approaches to school desegregation are reviewed and examples of programs that deal with racial equity and the quality of education are presented. Targets and strategies for change are identified, as are ways of getting necessary information. Finally, groups are advised on the selection of change strategies and how to follow-up to ensure the realization of a change project. (Author/WAM)
