Perceptions of educators about the human relations course mandated by Legislative Bill 250

Conda Sorensen Allen, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of a course mandated by Legislative Bill 250 (LB 250), on educators in one midsized, K–12 Nebraska school district. Legislative Bill 250, a Nebraska law passed in 1989, mandated teacher training in multicultural human relations prior to initial teacher certification or recertification. ^ Data were obtained through a questionnaire returned by 150 educators who had successfully completed the human relations training through a college course. The educators surveyed were employed in a midsized, K–12 school district in Nebraska. ^ Results of the study indicated that even though educators resisted the initial mandated concept of a human relations training, the course increased educators' awareness of human relations and multicultural issues. The results of the study supported the concept that educators disapproved of completion of mandated courses for recertification. Recommendations for continued emphasis of human relations and multicultural issues were presented. ^
