A RESTUDY OF THE ACCEPTANCE OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS IN RURAL WISCONSIN.
BUTTERFIELD, PAUL G.; KREITLOW, BURTON W.
RURAL ADULTS IN 38 LOCALITIES IN WISCONSIN WHO WERE STUDIED IN 1953 TO DETERMINE ATTITUDES AND ACTIONS TOWARD EDUCATIONAL PRACTICES, FARMING PRACTICES, AND ORGANIZATIONAL PARTICIPATION, WERE RESTUDIED IN 1963. ELEVEN OF THE 19 LOCALITIES CONSIDERED HOMOGENEOUS IN ETHNIC AND RELIGIOUS COMPOSITION IN 1953 HAD BECOME HETEROGENEOUS AND WERE TREATED IN SEGMENTS OF THE RESTUDY AS A THIRD TYPE OF LOCALITY GROUP. SUBJECTS IN HETEROGENEOUS LOCALITIES WERE FOUND TO BE CONSISTENTLY MORE FAVORABLE TOWARD EDUCATIONAL PRACTICES THAN THOSE IN HOMOGENEOUS LOCALITIES. BOTH GROUPS INDICATED LESS FAVORABLE ATTITUDES TOWARD ADULT EDUCATION CLASSES, JOINT PARENT-TEACHER PLANNING OF CURRICULUM, AND THE NEED FOR PARENT ORGANIZATIONS IN THE SCHOOL. THE CHANGED GROUP WAS MORE LEARNING-OREINTED THAN THE OTHER 2. BOTH HOMOGENEOUS AND HETEROGENEOUS LOCALITIES SHOWED INCREASED ACCEPTANCE OF IMPROVED FARM PRACTICES. NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES WERE FOUND BETWEEN GROUPS IN THEIR PARTICIPATION IN ORGANIZATIONS. ATTITUDES OF RELIGIOUS-ETHNIC GROUPS WERE ANALYZED INDIVIDUALLY AND COMPARED TO EACH OTHER. A RELATED DOCUMENT IS RC 002 503. (JEH)
