A Survey of Perceptions of and Attitudes Toward Schools of Choice of Various Constituencies.
Tannenbaum, Margaret D.
The assessment of attitudes and perceptions of various groups toward the school choice issue is the purpose of this exploratory study. A nonrandom pilot study administered to 342 parents, administrators, board members, and students used bivariate and univariate analyses to compare attitudinal differences. Findings indicate that attitude toward the choice issue depend on the degree of power held in the current school system. Those groups with the least power, such as parents, students, and new teachers, favor the option, and those groups with more power and control, such as administrators and board members, support the present system. An annotated bibliography and tables of survey responses are included. (LMI)
