An Investigation of the Administrative Problems Related to Resident Outdoor Education Programs in Certain Public Elementary and Secondary Schools.
Ambry, Edward Joseph
A survey of 90 selected public school districts in the United States was conducted to identify administrative problems unique to the operation of resident outdoor education programs, and to determine which problems were more, less, or equally difficult to resolve than administrative problems encountered in managing usual phases of an educational program. Fifty-nine (85.5 percent) of the 69 returned survey forms were usable, and were tested for statistical significance by the chi square method at the .10 level of probability. Outdoor education problems in the category of "Staff" were judged to be most difficult; problems in the categories of "Legality,""Finances-Budget," and "Miscellaneous," were judged to be of ordinary difficulty; and problems in the categories of "Curriculum,""Public Relations," a d "Board of Education," were judged to be least difficult.
