Cross Cultural Attitude Survey.
Burhoe, Jane C.
A survey assessed attitude and background differences of limited-English-speaking Southeast Asian refugee students and mainstream non-Asian students at Lincoln High School in Stockton, California. The survey was given to 256 English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) students in spring 1988 and 171 ESL students in spring 1989, and concurrently to a random sample of mainstream students--106 in 1988 and 94 in 1989. Bilingual aides were available to help ESL students interpret the survey. The instrument consisted of 30 forced-choice (yes/no) statements assessing attitudes, self-concept, family background, and school-related issues. Male and female responses are reported separately in some areas where differences were noted. Two final subjective questions asked students to indicate the school's biggest asset and biggest problem. The results are reported in tabular form with narrative analysis. (Author/MSE)
