A STUDY OF COMMUNITY OPINION CONCERNING JUNIOR COLLEGE FUNCTIONS.
MURDOFF, VIRGINIA F.
A SURVEY TO DETERMINE WHAT THE COMMUNITY UNDERSTANDS OF THE LOCAL JUNIOR COLLEGE AND ITS FUNCTIONS WAS CONDUCTED BY PERSONAL INTERVIEWS WITH 367 RANDOMLY SELECTED HOUSEHOLDERS. OF THOSE INTERVIEWED, 52.6 PERCENT HAD NO OPINION ON THE COLLEGE, 37.9 PERCENT FELT THAT THE COLLEGE WAS PERFORMING WELL OR ADEQUATELY, AND 9.5 PERCENT FELT IT WAS NOT. IN MANY CASES, THOSE WHO EXPRESSED AN OPINION GAVE NO REASONS FOR THEIR CONCLUSIONS. AFTER REPLIES WERE CLASSIFIED BY AGE, INCOME, EDUCATION, AND INFORMATION SOURCE OF THE RESPONDENTS, IT WAS FOUND THAT NO PARTICULAR SEGMENT OF THE POPULATION WAS MORE GROSSLY UNINFORMED THAN ANOTHER. THE NEED FOR MORE PUBLIC INFORMATION ON THE COLLEGE WAS APPARENT. (HH)
