The Center for the Arts and Sciences Follow-Up Study of 1991 Graduates. Evaluation Report.
Saginaw Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Evaluation Services.
Findings of a follow-up study that examined the experiences of 1991 high school graduates of the Center for the Arts and Sciences (CAS) program in Saginaw, Michigan, are presented in this paper. A survey mailed to 33 graduates received 16 responses. Findings indicate that all respondents were enrolled in a school, college, or training program. The two personal problems of greatest concern included self-imposed pressure to succeed and anxiety about meeting others' expectations for success. Their most serious educational problem was financial. The perceived strengths of the CAS program included its creative environment, interested teachers, and advanced, specialized curriculum. Students recommended increased cross-program involvement and more liberal student rules. Two tables are included. Appendices contain a copy of the questionnaire, cover letters, and survey responses.
