Education in Nevada: An Assessment, 1970 Study.
Nevada State Dept. of Education, Carson City.; Nevada Univ., Reno. Coll. of Education.
Determining the imperative educational needs in the State of Nevada constituted the general purpose of this study funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Utilizing the 1969 Wisconsin Educational Needs Assessment Study instrument, the study sought to evaluate educational needs in terms of subject fields to be taught, level of education needed in the various school districts, pre-vocational and occupational programs, teacher personnel concerns (e.g., salaries), administrative and pupil services, budget allocations, instructional approaches, educational programs, and inservice education. After a discussion of the foregoing areas of need, composite educational needs representing the sample population (n=451)--school board members, educators, students, and citizens from urban, rural, and remote areas--are noted. It is concluded that reading, education in motivating and guiding pupils, diagnosing pupil needs, individually guided instruction, and teacher personnel are among the high-priority items in planning for education in Nevada. Two appendixes, 28 tables, and 13 figures illustrate the report. (MJB)
