An Early Adolescent Program. The Center for Minority Achievement.
Cohen, Marvin; And Others
This report describes the ways in which the Center for Minority Achievement works to reform public education for early adolescents in six New York City schools. It consists of edited conversations among the three central staff members of the program and vignettes and quotes from a school student and from staff affected by the program. These conversations and quotes provide information about the methods that the Center used to promote minority student education and the results of the program. The impact of the program can be seen through a range of projects which include the following; (1) reorganization; (2) mentoring administrators; (3) staff development in schools; (4) a computer club; (5) word processing for parents; (6) brokering tutorial activities with corporate and collegiate volunteers; and (7) involving teachers and students with Bank Street College's Tiorati Environmental Center. Two appendixes are included. Appendix A contains a list of which aspects of the project work for the Center for Minority Achievement; Appendix B contains a brief catalogue of the Center for Minority Achievement's services and activities.
