Wisconsin School Health Education Profile. 1994 Survey Report. Executive Summary. Bulletin No. 96082.
Weiselberg, Lori A.; Wickland, Julia
This publication provides a snapshot of school health education in Wisconsin. The data were collected with two questionnaires, one for school principals on health education from an administrative perspective, and one for lead health teachers on health education from an instructional perspective. These two questionnaires were mailed in the spring of 1994 to a stratified sample of 324 randomly selected public schools containing any of grades 6 through 12. Principals and lead health teachers from 280 schools responded to the questionnaires. For the most part, the results are combined for all grades. The findings set a baseline in Wisconsin to gauge trends in school health education over time. The survey results are summarized in six areas: (1) staff development and experience; (2) parent and community involvement and support; (3) course offerings; (4) classroom health instruction and related activities; (5) Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) education; and (6) equity issues in health education. Specific recommendations are given for each area. Survey data are presented in graphs and narrative summaries. Appendices include selected lists of public instruction consultants, cooperative educational service agency consultants, and print materials. (Contains 17 references.) (ND)
