EAU CLAIRE COUNTY STUDY, PHASE II 1964-65.
FELDHUSEN, JOHN F.; AND OTHERS
THE EAU CLAIRE COUNTY YOUTH STUDY INVOLVED 384 STUDENTS CLASSIFIED ON THE BASES OF DOMICILE (RURAL OR URBAN), AND BEHAVIOR IN THE CLASSROOM (SOCIALLY APPROVED OR DISAPPROVED). A BATTERY OF TESTS, INTERVIEWS, AND OBSERVATIONS FOCUSED ON THE DELINQUENCY PRONENESS, PSYCHOLOGICAL ADJUSTMENT, AND FAMILY BACKGROUND OF THE CHILDREN. THE FINDINGS OF THIS STUDY CONFIRMED EARLIER RESULTS THAT THERE EXISTS A HIGH POSITIVE CORRELATION BETWEEN DELINQUENCY PRONENESS AND CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR. RESULTS INDICATED THAT THOSE CHILDREN WHO EXHIBITED DISAPPROVED CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR AND WHO WERE DELINQUENCY PRONE WERE CHARACTERIZED AS HAVING INADEQUATELY DEVELOPED RESPONSE MECHANISMS TO QUERIES BY TEACHERS AND PEERS, AS SEEING ADULTS FROM A NEGATIVE VIEWPOINT, AND AS USUALLY WATCHING EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF TELEVISION AT THE EXPENSE OF STUDY TIME. THE STUDY CONCLUDED THAT THE SCHOOL MUST ASSUME THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PROVIDING COMPENSATION THROUGH ENRICHED CURRICULUM FOR DISADVANTAGES WITH WHICH THE CHILD MUST LIVE. RELATED DOCUMENTS ARE RC 000 557, RC 000 406, AND ED 014 335. (DA)
