Carter, James E.
A survey was made of the attitudes of school personnel toward specific dimensions of the Regent's Action Plan for improving education in the State of New York. Responses revealed (1) a strong negative reaction to the proficiency requirement in foreign language, (2) support by elementary teachers for an increase in secondary testing requirements and support by secondary teachers for an increase in elementary testing requirements, (3) lack of support by secondary teachers for an interdisciplinary project, (4) opposition to remedial programs, (5) support for reporting test results to the public and the state, and (6) opposition to an extension of the school year. Overall, reports from the field, as evidenced by the regional meetings conducted by regents throughout the state, indicate support for the action plan. (BJD)
