Effect of a School-Within-A-School Program on Attitudes of Underachieving Students.
Jokiel, Bernard Joseph; Starkey, John
This study was made to determine if there is a difference in attitudes between average IQ but low achievers in two different school settings. The study was conducted with students in a northern Illinois school which features a school-within-a-school as well as a traditional setting. A questionnaire was administered. This study seems to indicate correlation between pleasant school and happiness but not between happiness and success. Better attitudes, higher feelings of success, and a greater feeling that the learning was useful in the school-within-a-school was indicated. (A copy of the questionnaire is included.) (Author)
