An Analysis of Secondary Students' Educational Aspirations, School Satisfaction and Self Satisfaction in the Seattle Public Schools. Report No. 80-9.
This analysis presents the results of a 1978-79 survey of junior and senior high school students in Seattle, Washington regarding their educational aspirations, interests and attitudes. A description of the survey respondents indicates that response rates were low, particularly among blacks and Hispanics. Data were compiled in the following survey areas: (1) reasons for staying in school; (2) importance ratings for qualities that relate to the overall development of a student; (3) percentage and frequency distributions indicating what students consider the most important part of school; (4) percentage and frequency distributions indicating what students like about school; (5) opinion on the degree to which textbooks reflect students' racial or cultural identity; (6) opinion on the degree to which career education should be emphasized in high school; (7) views on the necessity of passing standard examinations to receive a high school diploma; and (8) self concept of students by ethnic group and school programs (regular, other option and gifted option). A sample questionnaire and appendices of survey results by majority and minority group and sex concludes this report. (APM)
