Predicting Support for Foreign Languages: A Model for Secondary Schools.
Evans, Eston E.
A study investigated the rationale of and procedures for gathering data on foreign language programs in secondary schools in Tennessee. The study transcends previous foreign language surveys by suggesting a method of presenting data in a useful format by analyzing foreign language support (FLSPT) in terms of quantifiable factors or "favorable conditions" that may affect the environment and level of foreign language support in secondary schools. Factors considered include: population by county, density of population by county, per capita income by county, per capita tax levied by county, percentage of total county government expenditures for education, average teacher salaries by county, percentage of professional employees by county, percentage of residents by county with four or more years of higher education, and percentage of teachers by county with master's degrees and above.
