MILLER, VINCENT A.; SCHMID, CALVIN F.
THE IMPACT OF SOCIAL, ECONOMIC, AND POPULATION CHANGES IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON WERE ANALYZED TO DETERMINE RELATIONSHIPS TO AND INFLUENCES UPON PUBLIC EDUCATIONAL TRENDS, ESPECIALLY WITH RESPECT TO PHYSICAL FACILITIES, CURRICULUMS, STAFF, FINANCES, AND ADMINISTRATION. FOR THE PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY, THE STATE WAS GROUPED INTO LOGICAL AND RELATIVELY HOMEGENEOUS TERRITORIAL COMPONENTS WHERE THE VARIOUS FACTORS IN EDUCATIONAL AND SCHOOL CHANGE WERE INVESTIGATED AS FUNCTIONAL RESPONSES TO OVERALL COMMUNITY NEEDS AND CHANGES. DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM CENSUS TRACT PUBLICATIONS AND TABULATIONS, PRIVATE AND PAROCHIAL REPORTS, OFFICIAL RECORDS, FILES, INTERVIEWS, AND OBSERVATION. EXTENSIVE USE WAS MADE OF GRAPHIC TECHNIQUES IN THE REPORT, FACILITATING AND SIMPLIFYING THE NUMEROUS STATISTICAL PRESENTATIONS. STUDY CONCLUSIONS PROVIDED AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE MORE SERIOUS PROBLEMS RELATING TO THE SCHOOLS IN THE STATE AND OF THE FORCES AND CONDITIONS PRODUCING THEM. (JH)
