Schools in Change; A Comparative Survey of Elementary School Services, Facilities, and Personnel, 1965-69.
Humphreys, Edward H.
The document is a report of the third of a survey series that began in 1965, when the Ontario Teachers' Federation recognized the need to assess changes in the structure of Ontario school districts. In keeping with this, the 1969 survey was made (1) to determine teaching conditions as they existed in 1969 in public and separate schools, in rural and urban districts, and in farming, village, and city communities; (2) to determine whether differences that existed between urban and non-urban school districts in 1967 persisted in 1969 and to determine what changes took place in these districts in the 2 years after the second survey; (3) to determine whether differences existed between public and separate systems; (4) to determine whether the provision of school facilities was related to type of community in which a school was located; and (5) to compare facilities available in 1965, 1967, and 1969. The survey was conducted among all rural and urban elementary teachers in public and separate elementary schools in Ontario. Data were collected by means of a questionnaire mailed to each of the 1,189 teachers (945 of whom responded). Four hypotheses were tested in the study, and each was confirmed. (LS)
