DIFFERENCES IN ATTITUDES OF SOCIAL CLASSES--IMPLICATIONS FOR EDUCATIONAL PLANNING.
WOLFORD, MELVIN E.
SOCIAL CLASSES EXIST IN AMERICA EVEN THOUGH AMERICANS WOULD RATHER NOT DISCUSS THE SUBJECT. THE IMPORTANT AND OFTEN VAST DIFFERENCES IN ATTITUDES HELD BY MEMBERS OF DIFFERENT SOCIAL CLASSES MUST BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT IN CURRICULUM PLANNING AT THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATIONAL LEVELS. THESE ATTITUDES AFFECT ALL APSECTS OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM. REPRESENTATIVE TOPICS COVERED ARE ATTITUDES OF THE FAMILY, CLASS PERSONALITY DIFFERENCES AND THE SCHOOL PROGRAM, CLASS DIFFERENCES IN LEVELS OF ASPIRATION AND EDUCATION, CLASS ATTITUDES, DISCIPLINE, AND THE GUIDANCE PROGRAM, CLASS ATTITUDES AS THEY EFFECT SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION, THE TEACHER, AND PUPIL EVALUATION, ATTITUDES TOWARD TESTS, READING, WORK, AND RECREATION, ATTITUDES AND THE CURRICULUM IN GENERAL, PARTICIPATION IN SCHOOL ACTIVITES, AND DIFFERENCES IN PREJUDICE AND AGGRESSION. THE SCHOOL CAN AND SHOULD PLAY A RECONCILING ROLE AS WELL AS AN EDUCATIONAL ONE BETWEEN THE CLASSES.
