The Satisfaction of Parents with Their Community Schools as a Measure of Effectiveness of the Decentralization of a School System.
Andrews, Richard L.; Noack, Ernest G. S.
This paper reports the results of a statistical study of two community school districts within one urban school system. The purposes of the study were to determine (1) whether parents in a decentralized district are more satisfied with their schools than are parents in a regular, centralized district, and (2) whether the type of school district is a more significant indicator of a parent's satisfaction with the schools than the parent's race or age. Appended are tables illustrating study results, a sample questionnaire, and a bibliography. (LLR)
