High School Graduates of the Stormy Sixties. A Follow-up Study of the Edmonton Public High School Graduates 1967-71.
Friesen, D.; And Others
This document describes student activism in the high schools of Edmonton, Canada during the late 1960's and early 1970's and describes the current status of those students who classified themselves as high school activists during the period. Specific areas examined are: (1) what are the characteristics of high school graduates six to nine years after their graduation? (2) what differences can be observed between radical and nonradical students of the sixties? and (3) in retrospect, what do students identify as major issues in high school? A total of 149 individuals graduating during the period 1967-71 responded to a questionnaire designed to assess what happened to them and what happened to the radicals among them in the intervening years. Issues of student concern examined include: (1) drugs, (2) protest movements, (3) attendance regulations, (4) locker regulations, (5) drinking regulations, (6) job preparation, (7) discipline procedures, (8) parental attitudes, (9) smoking regulations, and (10) school security procedures. Data is presented and examined. Included are verbatim comments by respondents, the questionnaire, factor analysis, and coding guides. (MB)
