Teenagers Discuss the "Generation Gap." Youth Reports No. 1.
Herzog, Elizabeth; And Others
This report details the results of a study undertaken to poll high school student opinion on the "Generation Gap." A panel was randomly selected from students in college preparatory courses, in metropolitan areas located in the four main geographical regions of the United States. Replies to the questions were received from 251 students, in 53 schools, in 12 cities. Two open-ended questions asked the students to report the views that prevail among their friends and classmates as to (1) the main things adults do or say or fail to understand, that bother teenagers, and (2) the main things young people do or don't do that make things worse. The results of the study are reported as patterning of opinions rather than as exact count. The opinion patterns are complemented by numerous examples of student response. (Author/SJL)
