Goals of Secondary Education as Perceived by Education Consumers. Volume III, Elicitation Results and Discussion.
Blackwell, Peggy J.; Smith, Leonard
A study to determine parental attitudes toward the education their secondary school children were receiving was conducted in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Open-ended, tape-recorded elicitation interviews were conducted with the parents. Questions were asked that allowed parents to express any opinion, idea, attitude, or concern they might have about secondary education. Interviews were transcribed; after redundancies in each set of interviews were eliminated, 297 declarative statements representing the opinions, ideas, attitudes, or concerns of Albuquerque parents remained. The Philadelphia elicitation interviews were treated as an independent set and resulted in 46 additional statements. An overview of the elicitation interview results is presented in this report, followed by an extensive section on the content of the interviews. The final section presents a comparison of the results by city and gives conclusions and implications. (JD)
