Statewide Minimum Pupil Proficiency Standards in New Jersey: Interviews with Leading Figures.
Presented in this paper are the results of interviews undertaken in 1977 to determine who supported a new statewide minimum standards bill in New Jersey and why. The views of forty individuals who were selected on the basis of their active involvement in the statewide minimum standards issue, are summarized in statements following each of twelve questions that were asked during the interviews. Questions centered around the process and the reasons by which the law on minimum standards was advocated or opposed. Some of the issues dealt with include: accountability and performance for schools; local control; urban and minority groups; national trends; basic skills; public attitudes; testing; parental involvement; teacher and administrator responsibility; and financial support. The interview protocols are appended. (Author/EB)
