Summary

Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) staff members have participated in Tuesday released time human relations activities for three years to improve the climate of mutual trust and respect among members of the school community, to develop interpersonal communication skills, and to become more sensitive to values and attitudes of others. Using participant responses to a post-program questionnaire (80 percent response, 2,700 people) as a rough measure of program effectiveness, the results appear to be mixed. Some of the more favorable results were that the majority of the participants said that the Human Relations Program was worthwhile, that relationships among staff improved, and that their understanding of other racial and cultural groups improved. Some of the less favorable results were that the activities at some schools were rated positively by less than half of the participants, and that about 30 percent of the total group of participants did not feel that the three years of human relations activities had an impact on their relationships with adults and students in their school setting. Recommendations and directions for the future are proposed. (RC)
