Developing School and Community Support for Career Education and Education for the Handicapped; Brazoria County Cluster. Final Report.
Clark, Donald L.; And Others
The report evaluates a program of planned change of attitude toward career education and toward special education for the handicapped, undertaken in six school districts in Texas; specifically: (1) to determine if attitude change occurred, (2) to identify and characterize groups where change occurred, and (3) to identify influential activities. A modified causal-comparative study was used as the primary technique; subjects were administered pre- and postattitude sueveys to determine, by paired observation, the precise amount of attitude change. Each district and campus selected the activities they felt best suited their needs; members of the project advisory council exchanged ideas and provided guidance for the program. No significant differences in change were found among districts or among campuses, and there were no significant differences in attitude on any one career education concept. There were significant career education attitude changes, both positive and negative, among educators and patrons. There were no significant gains or losses within or among the attitudes of educators or patrons regarding education for the handicapped. There were significant differences found among campuses and among districts on several concepts (taken singularly) representing education for the handicapped. (Author/AJ)
