Fall 1994 Parent Survey Results. Eye on Evaluation. E&R Report.
Baenen, Nancy; And Others
A survey was conducted of parents in the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) in North Carolina. All WCPSS parents were asked their opinions on educational quality, magnet schools options, school safety, parental involvement, school environment, and school climate. Major findings indicate that generally parents expressed positive views regarding system climate with the majority of parents agreeing that the system provided high quality education and offered opportunities for success to all students. As for parental involvement, the majority of parents reported being involved in their child's education, with the greatest parental involvement at the elementary level. Most elementary parents viewed race relations and concerns related to cultural diversity as priorities. The majority of parents whose children used school transportation were satisfied. Parents' perception of their child's safety increased for all school levels in 1994. A comparison of 1994 results with those of the preceding 2 years revealed that parents' perception of the school system have remained stable. (Three attachments provide the actual survey form, the full responses to the 1994 parent survey, and results of the comparison with preceding years.) (AP)
