Smith, Robert M.
Kansas Speech Journal, v35 n3 p14-25 Spring 1974
Based on questionnaires sent to a random sample of 140 debate coaches in Kansas in December 1973, three aspects of Kansas high school debate programs--general characteristics of programs active in debate, budget characteristics of these programs, and general characteristics of the professional staff associated with the programs--are examined. Ten different tables provide information on some of the debate program's general features; budget and school classifications; sampled debate program when viewed from a budget perspective; rankings given the different criteria used in setting budget figures; budget changes from 1973 to 1975 according to school size; budget changes from 1973 to 1975 according to budget size; ways in which money was spent for meals, lodging, and transportation; characteristics of the debate coaches; how Kansas coaches fare in remuneration by school and administrators; and recommended debate textbooks and handbooks.
