Fresno City Unified School District, CA.
As one of a series of reports on the needs assessment activities of PROJECT DESIGN, funded by ESEA Title III, this document contains the findings of research designed to involve a cross-section of Fresno, California citizens in educational planning and to identify educational needs perceived by the "grassroots" of that community. The findings, gathered from reports of small-group discussion sessions, each with an average of seven participants, are specified by frequency of response in the following major categories: (1) Educational activities requiring more or less emphasis, (2) major educational problems, (3) locus of responsibility for teaching moral and ethical values, (4) education for job or career skills, (5) student guidance-counseling programs, (6) minority group and adult education, (7) student activity programs, (8) school-community relationship, (9) strengths and weaknesses of the educational system, and (10) general concerns. The appendix contains copies of instructions given to discussion leaders and three typical summary reports of discussions. A related document is EA 002 824. (JH)
