Overbrook Cluster Parent Survey 1969. A Detailed Report.
Philadelphia School District, PA. Office of Research and Evaluation.
To assess the views of parents of children living in a new inner-city high school administrative district, a household survey was conducted by a team of 20 interviewers between November 1968 and February 1969. The interviewers used stratified random sampling procedures involving geographical distribution, race, and grade level of students living in the area in May 1968. Of the 751 parents surveyed, 84.4 percent were Negro. Findings of the survey are reported in nine sections, as follows: (1) Characteristics of parents surveyed, (2) general attitudes toward the schools, (3) student performance and achievement, (4) instructional materials and school facilities, (5) curriculum, (6) parents' involvement with the schools, (7) discipline and security, (8) discrimination and rejection in the schools, and (9) community involvement. A series of 54 tables indicates percentage responses to major categories for individual interview items related to each section of the report. A copy of the interview schedule is appended. A related document is EA 002 498. (JK)
