Changes in Education, Health and Welfare As Perceived by County Knowledgeables.
Coleman, A. Lee
The summary is based on 8 tables, and on the comparison of these data with assessments of the change in the general quality of life. Data have been aggregated for the percentage of knowledgeable respondents in each county giving a certain answer. These are presented in the form of the range and the median of the county percentages in each of the 6 states (Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Tennessee) and for groupings of states. Measures are shown separately for white, minority, and total knowledgeable respondents, and for Upper South, Deep South, and individual states. Findings indicate that these observers, who are both knowledgeable about the institutional services in their counties and also in considerable degree responsible for them, feel that things have been going in the right direction in the last decade so far as education, welfare, and health are concerned. The major exception are white knowledgeables in the Deep South, many of whom feel that the public schools have been getting worse or only holding their own, which is undoubtedly related to desegregation.
