Baker, William P.; Jenson, Henry C.
The fourth report in a series of 5 yearly follow-up studies of a school district in San Jose, California, the report: (1) assists the district, and other districts with similar populations, in assessing organization, curriculum, and guidance services by ethnically analyzed responses and (2) compares the results of this study with the 3 previous studies (school years ending in 1956, 1961, and 1966). Study objectives determine: (1) characteristics, activities, and opinions and graduates and dropouts; (2) differences in problems faced by Mexican American, Black, and Other graduates and dropouts as determined by their responses; and (3) aspects of the curriculum and guidance program in which the data suggest need for modification. The report presents tabular data comparing graduates and dropouts with comparable figures from the previous studies. A summary of findings, by study objective, is given, along with a copy of the questionnaire used to obtain study data. (NQ)
