The Youthpoll questionnaire was sent to a random sample of 5,241 students who had taken the ACT battery of tests in the 1969-70 school year. One thousand six hundred and three students responded to open-end questions concerning their attitudes, opinion and feelings regarding their parents, their teachers and schools, and student protest. Most of this volume is made up of selected quotations from the individual responses to the free-answer questions. Youthpoll also asked 103 questions about social issues, national problems, relations with family and peers, political preferences, anticipated reactions to the draft, and plans for the future. These questions and the percentage sum of their answers conclude the report. (AF)
