An Analysis of the Opinions of Thirteen Client Groups Concerning the Harrison County Teacher Education Center.
Curran, John
This study is an analysis of the opinions of 13 client groups concerning the Harrison County Teacher Education Center (HCTEC) and is a sequel to a previous study. This study concentrated on two major questions: (1) what are the opinions of 13 client groups about the perceived needs for the HCTEC; and (2) how do these client groups differ in their opinions of the needs of the HCTEC. The data was obtained from the answers to 34 questions given by the 13 client groups in the previous study. The Fisher Least Significant Difference Formula was used to analyze the data. The results of this study revealed that the existence of a center to perform a wide variety of important functions in Harrison County's educational structure elicited a strong, positive reaction from all groups surveyed. Further, there was a strong homogeneity among all groups, indicating unanimity of opinion. The most notable exception to this pattern were college supervisors. Those functions of a teacher center that elicited the highest and the lowest homogeneity are given. The author recommends that a larger, more comprehensive study be done, preferably one involving all seven centers in the state of West Virginia. Tables are included. Appended are the survey instrument used and a list of terms and their definitions. (RC)
