The Ranking and Perceptions of Educational Goals as Determined by Groups Within a High School District. Research Reports on Educational Administration Volume V, Number 4.
Deever, R. Merwin; Berg, George E.
The dissertation summarized here assessed the priority of selected educational goals as perceived by certain representative groups in a school district and determined the degree to which the respective groups' expectations were being met. The six groups studied were students, teachers, lay citizens, administrators, citizen advisory committee members, and board of education members. The data were subjected to several statistical tests. Among the findings were that sufficient disagreement between and within groups existed to conclude that the educational needs of students should be identified in a more objective manner; that the lack of agreement between groups demonstrates better communication is needed; that the data provides a profile of the educational philosophy of each group; and that because of the disagreement, the study provided little definite direction for educational decision-making. Conclusions, recommendations, and implications of the study are reported. (Author/IRT)
