Summary

Three sections are presented--(1) the self-concept--basis for reeducation of negro youth (2) political socialization of negroes--image development of self and polity (3) negro youth and social adaptation--the role of the school as an agent of change. Some of the issues discussed are--that the problem is one of disadvantaged youth as well as a specific racial one, that the pace of the negro revolt and social change is increasing, that the schools are intricately involved in a social revolution, and that the negro has a problem of finding a sense of self as he moves up the social structure. Proposals for changing social-civic process involve more effective politics, greater use of the school, community events (like boycotts and sit-ins), parental action regarding the school, and involvement with municipal county and state government units.
