Final Report. Survey of Penfield School District Residents' Reactions to the Penfield-Rochester Transfer Program.
Helms, Lelia
This report is based on results from a panel study of residents of Penfield, N.Y., a community instituting a suburban-urban transfer with the City School District of Rochester in September 1968. Two interviews were conducted in September 1968 and in June 1969 with the same respondents: a random sample of district resident, a random sample of parents and school district elites. Results indicate consistent and general support of about 50 percent of the total for the program among all three samples. However, opposition increased over the period studied by a very slight amount to about 30-35 percent of the total. Little real polarization appears to have taken place among respondents contrary to expectations. In the community in general the transfer program is not a controversial issue and has received little attention in the newspapers. At present the transfer program continues to function smoothly although the potential for dissent within the community is latent.
