An Investigation of the Effects of Selected Variables on the Implementation of a Marine Infusion Curriculum.
Dresser, Harry H.; Butzow, John W.
This study attempted to identify differences among schools which accepted, rejected, or made exploratory use of a proposed marine education curriculum. The selected variables for this study included: (1) percentage of teachers by age; (2) percentage of teachers by area of academic preparation; (3) pupil teacher ratio; (4) per pupil expenditure; and (5) distance from marine environment. Significant relationships (following ANOVA and T-tests) were detected among acceptance/rejection and teacher academic field of preparation, percentage of white-collar workers in the community, and distance from the marine environment.
