The Adjustment of Jewish All-Day School Pupils Compared to that of Public Pupils.
Willner, Eric
Four hypotheses are tested in this study: (1) that there is no significant difference between students in regard to the total number of stated problems of adjustment; (2) that there is no significant difference between the two groups in adjustment related to either health and physical development, school, home and family, money, work, the future, boy-girl relationships, relations to people in general, and self-centered concerns, as reflected by the number of stated problems in each of these areas; (3) that there is no significant difference between the groups in the number of problems of adjustment specifically related to religion, with the all-day group indicating a greater degree of adjustment. Results showed more health and development and school problems and less feelings of security for day-school students. No significant differences between groups are found for the other problem areas. Findings are discussed in terms of Lewin's theory concerning ingroup and outgroup attitudes. (Author/AM)
