Dynamics of Educational Opportunities: A Report of the EEO Survey.
Dayton City Schools, OH.
This survey included opinions from four groups: 1) EEO Task Force members who had participated in workshops and regular meetings on the elimination of racial isolation in the schools; 2) new teachers assigned in their first year to racially different schools; 3) voluntary transfers (teachers) to such schools; and 4) a random sample of teachers in the system. The 11-page survey instrument called for judgments and responses in these areas, among others: stating the most basic educational need of students in the Dayton schools; suggesting ways of improving staff integration; determining the theoretical value of 14 teaching skills in new situations; self-ratings of performance on the same skills; appraising 21 statements about pupils and their achievement in integrated and in racially isolated schools; giving opinions on 28 statements termed "Dynamics of interaction"; ranking causal factors of unrest in the schools; ranking the important factors in a list of 32, in terms of their interference with learning; identifying key factors to successful achievement in the grade and subject taught. Accompanying the detailed report is a 4-page Research Conspectus which gives an overview of highlights of the report and a copy of the questionnaire. Limitations on the study include a less than 30% return of the voluntary survey forms. (Author/DG)
