Livingstone, D. W.; And Others
Results of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education 1982 Survey, intended primarily to offer ongoing profiles of mass attitudes on major issues of current educational reform, are reported. In addition to documenting trends in public support for general curricular and financing options, the survey focuses on attitudes towards alternative ways of relating schooling to the work world. The results of 1050 interviews with adults are reported in seven chapters: (1) Public Satisfaction and Educational Funding; (2) Accessibility of Educational Services; (3) Educational Decisions: Who and When?; (4) Perceptions of the Labour Market: Education, Skill Requirements, and Unemployment; (5) Preparing for Work; Preferred Curricular Objectives for the High School; (6) Linking the High School and the Workplace; and (7) Conclusion: Faith in Education and Economic Crisis. Fifty-four tables accompany the text. The first appendix contains information on sampling procedures, and the second appendix contains the survey questionnaire. (CJ)
