A Study of the Attitudes toward Public Education of Inner-City Parents with Children Attending Public Schools.
Chachere, Ernest G.; Johnston, Kathleen B.
The results of a poll, conducted in an inner-city area in New Orleans, Louisiana, and designed to assess parent attitudes toward public education, is described in this report. The procedures used in determining the sample for this study included: (1) identification of all students attendinq the four feeder schools in the inner-city area; and (2) establishment of a systematic procedure for selecting at random those included in the poll. The results indicated overall positive but somewhat conservative views of public education. Furthermore, education was ranked first ahead of health, crime, and social welfare for priority in the expenditure of new funds. (JCD)
