The Elementary Student Survey, 1974: A Study in Choice-Making.
Hooker, Sherrill; Welsh, Gail
For the first three years of the Southeast Alternatives (SEA) project, the parents of the SEA school children were polled each year to determine their reasons for sending their children to these schools. Since the basis of the project was to include students themselves in the decision making process, it was decided that students should also be interviewed to determine how they see their role in their learning environment. The survey was designed to measure student awareness, student's role in school selection, student's view of why parents chose their school, and student's satisfaction with choices that were made. The random sample was made up of 166 students from the elementary lists of the five SEA schools. A history was drawn up on each child and an oral interview conducted. All data, data analysis, and interpretations have been included in this paper. (DEP)
