50 Years Ago
A study group released its report on race relations in the Carlisle School System to the Progress Now Committee. The report recommended the system hire more black teachers, establish an advisory group to the school board, expand efforts to understand and appreciate minority cultures and establish sensitivity training sessions on race relations for teachers and guidance counselors. The report was based on input the group reviewed from a community workshop held in September. There were complaints from black students that teachers lack an interest in their education and devote less time and effort. There were also complaints that black teachers are not accepted as equals by white teachers.
