Dynamics of Deprivation and Educational Implications: Some Hypotheses and Impressions. An Interdisciplinary Sensorium Report. Revised.
Singh, S. P.
This document is a revised report on a "sensorium" organized in 1974 to encourage participants to sense and feel the effects of deprivation on disadvantaged people, with a focus on students in elementary and secondary schools and on educators involved in educational reform efforts. The interdisciplinary gathering gave professionals a chance to sense, as well as discuss, issues of deprivation among students. Conference participants representing various disciplines explored how they defined and assessed problems of deprivation and disadvantage. It was hypothesized that the syndrome of deprivation and disadvantage is universal, with stylistic features that deprived people display universally. Among the topics discussed in the wide ranging sessions were questions of creativity, culture, communication, what it means to be disadvantaged, theories of learning, and issues related to educational equity.
