Educational Quality of Life Indicators for the State of Indiana. Version 1.
Busch, Mary E.; And Others
The Indiana team approached its research from the hypothesis that one's quality of life is related to the educational system and proposed to explore the relationship between Indiana's educational system and its quality of life. Because of the comprehensiveness of the term "quality of life," the team decided to limit its study to the review of educational quality of life. Effort was made to assess the educational quality of life within all 92 Indian counties through the use of educational indicators. The study identified educational indicators, established a process for selection of indicators and data analysis, and identified exemplary programs. The team drew conclusions relating educational quality to several factors: unemployment/employment, college participation, degree of urbanness, education process, educational attainment, and taxpayer loading. The team recommends establishment of goals for the state of Indiana, continuous collection of certain data, replication of the present study, development and operation of a panel of experts, and awareness of exemplary programs throughout the state. Apprendixes present data, analyses, indicators and sources of indicators, descriptive statistics, and descriptions of exemplary programs. (Author/IRT)
