Workshop Participants' Perception Rankings of Second Generation School Desegregation Issues.
Michael, Charlene Belton; Riley, Marcia G.
This study sought to determine the perceived, relative importance of fifteen second generation desegregation issues as viewed by randomly selected school staff participants in Mid Atlantic Appalachian Race Desegregation Assistance Center workshops. It also attempted to assess whether there were significant differing perceptions among the participants. In the analysis of the data, four statistical methods were used: (1) Friedman's Two Way Analysis of Variance, (2) the Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test, (3) the Kruskal-Wallis Test, and (4) the Follow-up Z Test. The methods varied to determine if there was a significant difference among rankings of the survey issues due to demographic variables, the direction and the magnitude of significant variables, and the degree to which groups responded differently. Recommendations based on the findings of the study are included. (Author/APM)
