A Survey of Secondary Schools in India. Project Report Part 1.
National Council of Educational Research and Training, New Delhi (India).
The objective of conducting this survey is to locate areas where the secondary education program in India needs to be strengthened. The investigation studies the areas of: 1) physical facilities available in the secondary schools; 2) administration and staff; 3) subject enrollments; 4) curriculum and evaluation; and, 5) cost patterns. To gather data in these areas a questionnaire was developed with 108 major questions. These questions were structured under the following twelve headings: 1) general identification; 2) school enrollment; 3) curriculum offerings and time allocations; 4) physical facilities; 5) teaching staff; 6) administrative organization; 7) school finance; 8) examination and evaluation; 9) instructional program; 10) school library; 11) co-curricular activities; and, 12) pupil's welfare. This questionnaire was administered to a 10% sample drawn on a random stratified basis from the total number of secondary schools in India in 1960-1961 and 1961-1962. The results of the survey are reported in statistical tables by question and are summarized in Chapter 4 through Chapter 12. Generally it was found that a more extensive sampling is needed to permit all the types of generalization desired, and that the present study should be considered as exploratory in nature. Additional statistical tables are included in SO 001 590 through SO 001 592. (Author/AWW)
