The schools that fear built : segregationist academies in the South by David Nevin( Book )

7 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains a full discussion on the new private schools established in the South in the wake of integration orders. These schools are known as segregationist academies. The book is divided into two parts. Each was done separately and by a different author. The first part presents a qualitative report designed to present a clear and graphic picture of the nature of the new schools. The second part is a study of eleven particular schools conducted by an educational researcher and supported by computer analysis of test results. The analysis conducted on the eleven schools indicates that the schools operate under severe handicaps. They frequently have an insufficient pool of children from which to draw to assure adequate financial support, inadequately prepared teachers, weak headmasters who lack training and experience in administrative roles, and a restricted curriculum. In spite of the problems, the parents have strong positive attitudes toward the schools. The schools offer solutions to situations which the parents believe would be catastrophic for their children. They also emphasize the parents' values, E.G. neatness, discipline. The qualitative and descriptive data indicate that the private schools which were studied should be of a highly inferior quality as measured by their effects on the children, but the quantitative data suggest that the results are not entirely as expected and that for the children in these private schools, experience in their local public schools might have negative affective effects. The inadequate data which are available suggest that cognitive achievement may be about the same for students in the private schools as for those in the public schools. (Author/AM)

Left-handed fastballers : scouting and training America's grass-roots leaders, 1966-1977 : a report based on a study for the Ford Foundation by David Nevin( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 1966 through 1977, 700 men and women were selected, primarily because they had demonstrated some capacity for personal initiative, to be fellows in the $11 million Leadership Development Program (LDP) supported by the Ford Foundation to develop new leadership in rural America. To operate LDP a decentralized organization with offices in Maine, Georgia, New Mexico, and Colorado was created and staffed by regional agents who recruited fellows and planned individually tailored programs usually involving extensive travel, new experiences, personal stresses, and some rethinking of career directions. Fellowship experiences included: teaching paralegal techniques in Tennessee; establishing an Atlanta street academy for dropouts; working in agencies such as the Mexican-American Community Services Agency in San Jose, the Southwestern Indian Development in Phoenix, and the Economic Development Administration in Washington, D.C.; touring rural Headstart programs and studying Headstart techniques at Peabody College in Nashville, Tennessee; examining alternative education methods in California, London, and North Dakota; and studying mountain music in Tennessee. LDP experiences expanded fellows' understanding of society, reduced their insularity, and gave some of them new tools with which to work. LDP created bridges between unaware communities and the largely urbanized nation that surrounds them. (NEC)
