A Public Opinion Survey on Educational Planning.
Puzzuoli, David A.; Gillespie, John O.
Major objectives of this planning study were (1) to determine public opinion as related to the need for a "multi-county" educational service unit and (2) to determine public opinion on selected school functions as they are presently organized in Region II, West Virginia. The 3 phases of the study consisted of development of the questionnaire by West Virginia University, the administration of the questionnaire to a random sample of Region II adult citizens, and the interpretation of data received through the use of professional opinions and statistical methods. Of the 3,200 questionnaires distributed, 60% were returned for analysis. Based upon completed returns, it was concluded that there appears to be supportive evidence for a proposal to establish regional administrative units in the state school system of West Virginia. The document contains 58 tables, 1 figure, and 5 appendices. (AL)
