The Effect of Student Rights and Responsibilities Movement on Massachusetts Schools.
Hrinko, John Joseph
The purpose of this study is to show the reactions occurring within public school districts in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts relative to the objectives sought by the youth of the state. These objectives include the eradication of the alienation which presently exists between adults and young people in order that they may work jointly toward building a better educational community. School board chairmen, superintendents, and principals were issued questionnaires which asked how they felt toward the youth movement in its attempt to share in the educational process through involvement at the high school level. Many of the questions originated from the document "Humanization Guidelines for Education" prepared by the state Youth Advisory Council. A tabulation of responses is shown for each part of the questionnaire, as well as a comparison of all responses. The findings indicate that administrators of the school systems of Massachusetts are concerned with the students' role in shaping a relevant and sound education, and that the administrators are willing to implement reasonable and mutually agreed-upon programs.
