Massachusetts Advisory Council on Education, Boston.
This publication is the complete report of A Study of the Comprehensive High School in Massachusetts. The study, which began in 1969, had four phases. Phase 1 was a wide-ranging survey of 251 Massachusetts public high schools. Phase 2 was a more intensive study of 33 representative schools, in which consultants gathered information on the attitudes and perceptions of school personnel, students, and parents. Phase 3 consisted of a series of regional conferences, which were held to present and discuss 10 position papers on current ideas and practices for school improvements. Phase 4 involved the preparation of tentative recommendations and the dissemination of the recommendations to professional groups and individuals concerned with secondary education in Massachusetts. This report presents the study recommendations, as well as the significant findings of the study, and the opinions expressed by staff members, students, and parents about their high schools. In addition, the report also contains the various questionnaires used in the study, the 10 position papers presented at the regional conferences, and other pertinent information about the study and its methodology.
