Educational Needs as Perceived by Seven Constitutncies in Education.
Rankin, Richard J.; And Others
A survey designed to identify perceived educational needs in a large suburban school district was administered to a representative sample of elementary teachers, junior high teachers, senior high teachers, special education teachers, junior high students, senior high students, and parents. Intercorrelation and factor analysis of the data revealed two distinct clusters of attitudes and perceptions identified as "all adults" and "all students." Survey findings indicate that students desired more knowledge of career opportunities and wider cultural experiences, while adults emphasized the importance of reading and writing skills. Both students and adults felt it was important for students to develop a good self-concept, though adults stressed that need more than students. (Author/JG)
