Students Learn Culturally Deprived Is Not Just Jargon [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 25 August 1964
Students Learn Culturally Deprived Is Not Just Jargon "Culturally deprived" is no longer just a classroom term to nine KSU education majors. They spent a quarter working with pupils in the "blighted" Hough area of Cleveland. During the Spring Quarter the five coeds and four male students observed classes at Addison Junior High School and at East High School. These schools service the Hough area which contains 8 per cent of the Cleveland population, yet has 18 per cent of the city's "social problems." In these so-called culturally-deprived neighborhoods, good teachers are hard to get —and even harder to keep. It was chiefly to prepare interested college students for the type of teaching situations to be faced that the Cleveland Project was formed as a cooperative effort of the University, the Community Action for Youth (CAY) and the Ford Foundation. The KSU students, sophomores and juniors in the College of Education, were Barbara Asdell, Benjamin Banks, Renate Faust, Barbara A. Hink...
