Multicultural Sensitivity: A Principal's Reference Guide.
Baughn, Juan R.; And Others
This guide for principals on how to be multiculturally sensitive is based on 223 responses to a Multicultural Sensitivity Survey mailed to principals across Pennsylvania in July 1989. There are numerous ways this guide can be used: (1) network to gain information; (2) network to offer information; (3) increase awareness with assemblies; and (4) provide support by securing materials. Listed in the guide are case studies related to the three most common situations principals in our survey said they faced: student/student conflict, staff accused of prejudice, and staff insensitivity. Avenues for obtaining materials for the classroom are given, as well as contacts for inservice speakers. The guide identifies principals with multicultural programs currently in place, and principals in schools with 9 percent or greater of any minority. Additionally, it identifies 94 principals willing to network giving their phone numbers and schools and listing them by programs in place, situations faced, and experience with minorities. A matrix indicates the multicultural activities each principal is using. (KDP)
