Facts & Figures: A Layman's Guide to Conducting Surveys.
This book is intended to aid school officials in conducting effective community surveys for the purpose of improving citizen involvement and influence in educational decision-making. Although the book is of considerable value when used alone, it is designed for use as part of a set of related publications collectively entitled, "Factual Politics." Titles and prices of the other publications in the set are listed at the end of the book. The book is organized in three major chapters. Chapter 1 presents a detailed discussion of how to conduct an effective survey and how to analyze and use the results. Chapter 2 briefly outlines how to train citizens to conduct good interviews. Chapter 3 consists of six brief case studies of actual community surveys conducted by local educational groups and includes sample questionnaires and interview forms developed for use in these surveys.
