Educational Goals: How Much Agreement Can We Get on Which Ones Are Important?
Sweigert, Ray L., Jr.
In establishing educational goals through the Delphi technique, convergence of perception is of paramount interest. Progress toward integrated schools and changing sex roles make the perception of educational goals by groups defined by race and sex of practical significance. In three studies involving panels of community leaders, educators, and high school students respectively in metropolitan Atlanta, convergence in perceptions of goals was examined within each panel as a whole and among groups defined by race and sex within panels. It was found that both individual and group perceptions generally tended to converge. Goals reflecting serious areas of disagreement were identified. (Author)
