Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - September 6, 1970, Florence, South CarolinaSunday september parents speak out of desegregation cooperation Calm stressed for school opening question do you foresee any problems arising when school opens no i Don t foresee any problems. Most Whites Here in Timmonsville Are going to private schools this year and that should alleviate Many adjustment problems on both sides. Note Timmonsville schools opened last thursday without incident Graham no. I can t speak for most but i believe they Are trying to make the Best of the situation in every Way. Question what do you think Black and White communities As a whole can do to make sure that the change is a smooth one Turner this is the Way i see it quit running away and fighting and face desegregation. You can t put a Large amount of Money in something and then leave it. I say let s stay and get the Best of it. Give the Black kids an equal Chance for a Quality education. Graham i feel that we can stress cooperation and understanding from All angles of the situation. If we can teach this in our respective communities we won t have the problems that some peo ple seem to think could be tile result of desegregation. Question since the children Are the main characters in this new chapter of the education what do you suggest they do in the Way of attitudes and actions when dealing with the opposite race Turner to begin with Timmonsville schools have a very strict code of ethics that the student must follow As to dress and actions. I Don t think a child should be saying something derogatory about the color of a person s skin or his race even though peo ple do. Now if a child encounters any racial problems a t school he should above All avoid anger giving insults or ganging together to get if the child is with a buddy that buddy should try to break up the argument before it starts. Children should always be on their Best behaviour. If a person Calls you a name you Don t like you know you Aren t what s the cause of fighting people must learn to understand and to respect each other. Graham i would suggest that both Black children and Whites to try As Best they can to put into action the Golden Rule which says do unto others As you would have them do unto the associates and friends around the persons involved should try to prevent trouble. People around them can think reasonably and should try to halt the situation before it goes any further. They should treat each other As human beings. Question How should parents approach the Issue of desegregation Turner i think that if both Black and White parents would get together through some sort of Community projects and meetings i actually feel they could understand their adjustment about what and fear. Graham 1 problems who they think the j. Leroy Graham stresses cooperation transition to desegregation will be More orderly if Black and White parents would instruct their children to go All out in an Effort to make integration work. What i mean is that i Hope they Tell their children to treat each other As an equal. They should not be saying Don t associate with Blacks or Don t associate with question do you think there will be a change As some people charge in the Quality of education a c Onipa Nying desegregation will the Quality of education As you know it from recent experience Rise or fall Turner yes there will be a change in the Quality of the Type of education All Chil Dren will be getting in pub Lic schools. I believe that integration actually will elevate the Quality for All children Black or White. Everyone will be better off because of it. Florence county this year for the first time in history is operating a unitary school systems after generations of operating separate systems for Black and White children.

You re not trying to bring the standards of education Down you re trying to bring the standards of other people up. Graham i m afraid that due to the drastic changes in education the Quality of it could be a Little off at t isl but it could get better and better As time progresses. John r. Turner sees better education question do you have any children entering scheduled desegregated Public schools this year did you give them any special advice if so what was it Turner yes i have a daughter entering the first Grade this year but i Haven t Given her any advice on How to Cope with the White children. I Don t think a child should be saying anything about the color of a person s skin. I want my child to grow up with the idea that she is an individual girl not Black or White but just a girl to be live and act As Only a girl should. Graham yes 1 have children attending an integrated High school Here in Florence. But they seem to have found out How to get along with All children because they come Home and say How wonderful everyone is at the school. Question what projects or special meetings with parents of both races do you have planned or do you suggest be planned for the coming year Turner i think that several meetings should be held to reorganize All Pat s and groups like it in an Effort to bring concerned parents teachers and students of both races together. This is because the Only Way we can have a valid educational system is to come together in order to eur differing ideas and compile then to see what we have. Actually i Don t believe there is any tension Between e races. But i d like to say this again you can t get anything out of violence bloodshed and hatred. You Don t accomplish anything by having hated towards another individual. These meetings i suggested Are designed to help us Bury the we should not be interested in what happened yesterday. We ought to concern ourselves with today and especially tomorrow and in the far future. Graham Well our Fra at Mcclenaghan has already taken some Steps toward this goal. Now t h e organization s main role is the concern of the welfare of children in the Home school Church and Community. We Are to act As a Liason Between the parents students and teachers. One of the objectives is to have All parents Black and White to meet with All teachers to discuss their child s work and How he gits along with other children. We have a panel composed of Blacks and Whites to answer questions parents might have As to the total integration set up. We would like to see a vocational meeting formed which will give parents of. Both races the Opportunity to learn about All equal vocations available to their children if they Are not going on to College. We would like to see Counselor of schools to help All children plan for College and for their life s work. 750 expected to Register at Tec Here More than 750 students a expected to be enrolled at the f1 o r e a Darlington Are technical education c e n t e when classes begin thursday according to school officials.
