Taxpayers Want More Alternatives: A Report on the Educational Values and Priorities of the Populace of Eugene, Oregon School District 4J.
Brattain, David; And Others
This report presents the findings and recommendations of a study to determine the attitudes of taxpayers toward the performance of School District 4J in Eugene, Oregon. Data revealed that only 32 percent of the taxpayers considered the district schools to be meeting community needs. Since the constituent opinions toward appropriate school functions are so diverse, recommendations are made whereby the school district may provide alternatives within the existing financial structure. Such alternatives include more individualized education, year-round use of school facilities, and decentralization and communitization of the schools and of the district. The report also suggests using the learning center approach to community education with centers that would reflect a variety of philosophical outlooks and teaching methodologies and for which the community would provide the guidelines.
