A Survey of Theatre in American Secondary Schools.
Gillespie, Patti; And Others
In a survey of the status of theatre in high schools throughout the United States, questionnaires were sent to a random sample of high schools stratified by state and by school size. Analysis of the responses obtained from 606 schools (20.2% return) indicated that most secondary-school drama programs operate on the cocurricular level and emphasize production. This report gives data obtained about such aspects of the programs as training of instructors, program goals, frequency of productions, degree of student involvement in productions, financial and other types of support, and major problems cited by drama teacher/coaches. The report notes implications of the study and suggests some ways of alleviating problems and improving the quality of high school theatre programs. (GW)
