Social Contact and Personal Adjustment as Variables Relating to Attitudes Toward EMR Children. Studies in Learning Potential, Volume 3, Number 51.
Gottlieb, Jay; And Others
Attitudes of 499 intellectually average elementary grade children toward educable mentally retarded (EMR) pupils were studied, and replicated 4 months later, in schools serving and not serving EMR pupils. Both sets of findings indicated that attitudes toward EMR pupils were most favorable when the raters had little school contact with the EMR children. The second purpose of the study was to test the prediction that well adjusted non-EMR pupils would express more favorable attitudes than poorly adjusted children. The results did not support this prediction. (DB)
