Small Group Synthesis, Group C

pp. 297—306

Any group report is conditioned by who is in the group and group dynamics. Our group was no exception. Of the 26 persons present, 10 are employed in universities because they are school psychologists; nine are in the public schools; three in school-serving agencies, such as state departments of education; two, in universities but in roles not directly related to school psychology; and two are graduate students; all in all, a pretty even occupational distribution of the persons invited to the Symposium. Anticipating major differences in point of view between trainers/academicians on the one side and practitioners/state department personnel on the other, the group composition afforded the opportunity for different views to be expressed without an imbalance among group participants.
