White, Terry F.
This 1986 study of high school seniors addresses two topics. First, it reports seniors' attitudes toward and opinions about school, teachers, and school problems. Second, it compares the attitudes and opinions of high school seniors with those of Americans in general and those expressed by parents of high school students. Responses to questions in the following areas are reported: (1) attitudes concerning teachers and the teaching profession; (2) the quality of schools; (3) school activities; (4) school policies and practices; (5) the most serious problems facing public schools; (6) national testing; (7) liking school; (8) future plans of students; and (9) seniors, work, and money. Results are reported in percentages and comparisons are made with previous studies. Information on methodology and on the comparison studies are contained in an appendix. Disaggregated responses are shown for race, sex, type of school, and student grades. (VM)
