Evaluation of Safety Education (Choctaw Agency School System, Philadelphia, Mississippi, February 1976). Research and Evaluation Report Series No. 40.01.
Lowry, Carlee S.
Questionnaire responses derived from a sample of 202 Choctaw students (grades 4, 6, 8, and 10) in attendance at the Bureau of Indian Affairs' Choctaw Agency Schools (Philadelphia, Mississippi) were utilized to evaluate the Choctaw Safety Education Program. In addition, parents, teachers, janitors, bus drivers, council members, and principals were interviewed via site visits to the five outlying elementary schools and Choctaw Central High School. Evaluation criteria were: objectives; administration; curriculum; in-service training; audio-visual aids; budget; safety handbook; accident reporting form; safety organizations; safety in shops; inspection of fire safety; traffic safety; first aid; first aid supplies; bicycle in-service training. Major conclusions were: (1) there should be written objectives for the safety education program; (2) the safety education program is well incorporated in the regular school curriculum; (3) the high school driver education safety program is doing an excellent job; (4) funds should be made available for the safety education program; (5) there should be safety organizations within each school system; (6) each school should have a handbook tailored to its needs; (7) each school should have an accident reporting form to go to the Environmental Protection Agency every month.
