Goals for Elementary and Secondary Public Schools in New Jersey: A Survey Among New Jersey Residents. A Research Report.
Westefeld, Albert; Weymar, Caroline S.
The survey results presented in this report are based on personal interviews with a probability sample of 1,000 New Jersey residents, age 16 and over, a separate subsample of 105 Spanish-speaking residents, and an additional sample of 225 persons who have had broad exposure to those who have been or are being educated in New Jersey's elementary and secondary schools. Some of the objectives of the survey were: to determine what the general public in the State believes are the proper goals for education and what it holds to be relative priorities among these goals; to measure the level of satisfaction with the current state of public education in New Jersey; and to attempt to learn the strengths, weaknesses, and accomplishments of those who are products of the elementary and secondary schools of the State.
