Process and Problems of Prioritizing Educational Goals in a Complex Society.
Thompson, Eugene W.; Smidchens, Uldis
The Phi Delta Kappa model for community and professional involvement in goal decision-making was employed to encourage participation by established power groups and previously uninvolved citizens in the establishment of priorities for a board of education set of goals. Representatives of the various educational constituencies in the community indicated their perceived priorities of these goals, which closely resembled those suggested by Phi Delta Kappa. Nearly 2,000 educational consumers, including a 5 percent random sample of parents, participated in the effort through a series of meetings conducted by building principals. Data analysis began with efforts to condense the 18 goals into two distinct domains, cognitive and affective, and to examine for differences among the various groups and subgroups. The level of significance of difference varied from goal to goal and from group to group. (Author)
