SEA Staff Survey-1974: General Report.
Rawitsch, Don; Hooker, Sherrill
The instructional staff at the Southeast Alternatives (SEA) program operated by the Minneapolis Public Schools were surveyed to determine their reaction to the SEA program. The two major objectives of the survey were to obtain staff opinion on issues concerning the program as well as progress toward achieving SEA major goals. The major findings of the report were: (1) more staff members were satisfied with the program at their school than with the total SEA program; (2) many staff members felt that the SEA program within their schools produced a better educational program than provided by non-SEA schools in the following: cognitive skills, affective learning, producing an appropriate disciplinary atmosphere, serving the needs of minority students and students from low income families. Other findings included the impact of funding source on staff morale and the need for an intense training of staff members for each new alternative program. (DEP)
