The Development and Evaluation of an Alternative High School: A Report on S.E.E. (School of Experiential Education). Phase 2.
Simon, Roger I.; And Others
This report marks the conclusion of a two-year study of SEE (School of Experiential Education), an alternative high school. It is a statement of the examining group's perceptions of SEE's second year of operation and of implications for SEE's future development. Because the evaluation group believes that a new program such as this takes four to five years to develop to maturity, this is a progress report rather than a final evaluation. Chapter 2 describes the evaluation group's involvement with the school, discusses possible biases operating in the report, and details the data collection (primarily interviews and questionnaires) and analysis procedures. Chapter 3 presents some basic facts about the school and its applicants and documents some of the changes that have occurred over a two-year period. Chapter 4 describes students' adjustment, achievement, and growth patterns over a two-year period. Chapters 5, 6, and 7 discuss various aspects of SEE's climate as seen by students, parents, and teachers. Chapter 8 presents another perspective by contrasting SEE students with a sample of students who applied but were not selected in the admissions lottery. Chapter 9 explores the implications of the findings for SEE's future directions and offers recommendations to remedy some current problems. (Author/IRT)
