A Comparison of Degree of Alienation in Special Education and Normal Subjects.
Silverman, Mitchell; And Others
To investigate differences between special education (SE) and normal subjects with respect to degree of alienation, 102 males and 54 female educable mentally retarded adolescents were compared to their normal peers on responses made to an 87-item opinion questionnaire. Of the seven measures of alienation contained in the questionnaire, the SE subjects showed a greater degree of alienation on six of the seven factors. Also, on four of the alienation scales male subjects exhibited significantly more alienation than females. Normal males also exhibited more alienation than their counterparts on two factors, while no differences were found between the special education groups. (Author/KW)
