JENNINGS, KENT M.
TO AID IN THE EXPLANATION OF PARENT-SCHOOL RELATIONSHIPS, THE DEVELOPMENT, NATURE, AND HANDLING OF PARENTAL GRIEVANCES WAS ANALYZED. INTERVIEWS WITH 1,669 STUDENTS AND 1,992 PARENTS PROVIDED DATA TO EXPLORE THE FOLLOWING FIVE MAJOR PROBLEMS--(1) THE DISTRIBUTION OF GRIEVANCES, (2) THE STUDENT-PARENT TRANSMISSION OF GRIEVANCES, (3) THE RELATION OF GRIEVANCES TO SCHOOL AFFAIRS, (4) THE SUBSTANCE OF GRIEVANCES, AND (5) THE REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES. THE FINDINGS OF THE STUDY WERE THAT (1) 13 PERCENT OF THE PARENTS INTERVIEWED HAD GRIEVANCES WITH COURSE CONTENT, (2) 27 PERCENT OF THE PARENTS HAD GRIEVANCES WITH "OTHER EVENTS" AT SCHOOL, (3) SCHOOLS CLASSIFIED AS CONTROVERSY PRONE WERE POSITIVELY CORRELATED WITH HIGHER GRIEVANCE RATES, (4) STUDENTS AND PARENTS REPORTED SPECIFICALLY PERCEIVED GRIEVANCES AT NEARLY THE SAME FREQUENCY, (5) STUDENT-PARENT RELATIONSHIPS AND DIFFERENTIATED ROLES OF THE MOTHER AND FATHER DETERMINED THE INTERPRETATION OF TRANSMITTED GRIEVANCES, AND (6) 58 PERCENT OF THE COURSE CONTENT GRIEVANCES OCCURRED IN THE AREA OF RELIGION AND POLITICS.
