A COMPARISON OF PERCEIVED EDUCATIONAL VALUES OF COMMUNITY COLLEGE STUDENTS, THEIR PARENTS, AND FACULTIES IN FIVE OREGON COMMUNITY COLLEGES.
PAETZ, CARL G.
A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS USED TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT OF AGREEMENT ON PERCEPTIONS OF EDUCATIONAL VALUES HELD BY STUDENTS, THEIR PARENTS, AND FACULTY. ITS TWO PARTS WERE (1) DEMOGRAPHIC DATA AND (2) 23 EDUCATIONAL VALUES UNDER THREE HEADINGS--THE VALUE OF (A) JUNIOR COLLEGE, (B) A COLLEGE EDUCATION, AND (C) A PARTICULAR COLLEGE. THE REPLIES WERE ANALYZED BY SEX, HIGH-SCHOOL GRADES, CAREER ASPIRATIONS, PARENTAL OCCUPATION, PARENTS' EDUCATION, AND FACULTY TEACHING FIELDS. TABLES SHOW THE NUMBER OF RESPONDENTS, THEIR REPLIES, AND THE FINDINGS. THE CONCLUSIONS ARE THAT (1) STUDENTS ARE REALISTIC IN THEIR VALUE RANKINGS, (2) MORE FEMALES THAN MALES FEEL IT IMPORTANT TO LIVE AT HOME, (3) STUDENTS' RANKINGS WERE CLOSER TO THEIR PARENTS' THAN TO THE FACULTY'S, AND (4) STUDENTS ARE NOT REALISTIC IN THEIR CAREER CHOICE. IT WAS ALSO FOUND THAT (1) STUDENTS AND FACULTY AGREE ON THE IMPORTANCE OF PERSONAL INSTRUCTION, (2) STUDENTS ERR IN PERCEIVING THEIR PARENTS' VALUES, AND (3) IN SPITE OF DIFFERENCES ON SPECIFIC ITEMS, ALL THREE GROUPS AGREED SIGNIFICANTLY ON THE OVERALL RANKING OF VALUES. FURTHER RESEARCH IS NEEDED TO SHOW STUDENT PERCPETIONS OF FACULTY VALUES, VALUES OF STUDENTS IN 4-YEAR SCHOOLS AND IN URBAN JUNIOR COLLEGES, AND THE COLLEGES' DEGREE OF SUCCESS IN MEETING THESE VALUES.
