Report of the Evaluation of the Race/Human Relations Program. Student and Staff Program and Long Range Goals. Baseline Year 1982-83. Evaluation Services Department Report No. 348.
Tomblin, Elizabeth A.; And Others
In response to a 1982 Superior Court order, a centrally developed, sequential program for improving race/human relations in the San Diego City Schools was developed and field tested or implemented during the 1982-83 school year. This systematic evaluation reports on the student program, "Conflict"; the staff program; and baseline data for program goals. Twenty-four selected schools formed a stratified random sample. Twelve treatment group schools taught conflict materials, and 12 comparison group schools taught identity materials or developed their own program. As multiple evaluation methods were used, each report section describes the design, findings, conclusions, and recommendations. Part I, the short-range goals, decribes the evaluations of the student program, "Conflict," and the staff developmental program. Part II, the long-range goals (baseline year), reports on racial mixing and quality of interactions through school observations, student participation in school activities and leadership positions, interviews with administrators about institutional procedures, student suspensions, student and staff perception of justice and fairness at the school, and student career goals. Part III discusses findings, conclusions, and recommendations for both the race/human relations program and the evaluative procedures. Fifteen appendices contain the student and staff surveys, the racial relations assessment form, career planning inventories, interview questions, and data on suspensions. (BS)
