Skyline Wide Educational Plan (SWEP) Product Evaluation Report: Future Society. SWEP Evaluation Report No. 1.
Burns, Robert J.
This report presents the findings of a survey designed to describe the state of society in the 1980s, particularly as it will affect the educational needs of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. The report was prepared to aid administrators of the Skyline Wide Educational Plan in their efforts to develop a comprehensive secondary school plan for the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex in the 1980s. Questionnaires were distributed to a selected national sample of 290 individuals known to have devoted much of their professional time to contemplating and planning for the future. Questionnaire items consisted of various propositions gleaned from futuristic literature. Respondents were asked to indicate on five-point scales the likelihood of a given proposition and its probable impact on education. Respondents were also encouraged to identify areas or facets of education that would be heavily affected. Analyses and interpretation were based on computed mean, mode, and standard deviation scores for the 151 individuals who completed questionnaires. A number of statistical tables and diagrams summarize the survey results. Samples of the survey questionnaires are presented in the appendix. (Author/JG)
