Incorporating Diversity at the Community Level – Example 1: Developing a School Program Which Encourages and Supports Racial and Ethnic Diversity

Part of the Clinical Sociology: Research and Practice book series (CSRP)

Obviously, if racially and culturally diverse children are to be provided with a valuable educational experience that prepares them for a useful future and enriches their lives, it is important that they be provided with a school environment in which they are able to learn in safety and comfort. Many schools in the past have not provided such a setting. This section will describe and evaluate a program which proposes to enhance the school learning environment, particularly with reference to diversity-related issues. We will first describe the program itself; this will be followed by an analysis of teacher and student evaluations concerning its success.
