Philadelphia School District, PA. Office of Research and Evaluation.
Condensed findings of a comprehensive survey of parent attitudes in a new inner-city high school administrative district are presented in a folder designed primarily for the supporting community. The survey used stratified random sampling procedures involving geographical distribution, race, and grade level of the students living in the area in May 1968. Personal interviews were conducted between November 1968 and February 1969 of 751 parents, 84.4 percent of whom were Negro. The purpose and nature of the survey are explained and special attention is given to general characteristics of the survey area, interviewers, parents and their attitudes toward the schools, evaluation of the students' performance, school books and facilities, the curriculum, parents' involvement with the schools, discipline and security, discrimination and rejection, and community involvement.
