An Evaluation of the Schools of Choice Programs: Progress Report [and] Executive Summary.
Noblit, George, Ed.; Rinne, Dorothy H., Ed.
In January 1982, the Wake County Board of Education adopted The Schools of Choice Programs. The stated objectives of the Programs were: (1) to improve facility utilization systemwide, (2) to establish a consistent organizational pattern of schools (K-5, 6-8, and 9-12) county-wide, (3) to racially balance student populations of schools, (4) to provide a more effective and economical transportation system, (5) to improve educational programs through expanded curricula, (6) to provide equity of educational opportunity, and (7) to provide for increased parental participation. This report is an evaluation of these objectives and of questionnaires evaluating the Programs sent to teachers, students, and parents. The objectives, program descriptions, student achievement, and attitudes toward the programs are discussed, and a summary is presented. (Data presented should be considered as a base for a longitudinal study.) (PN)
