Attitudes and Opinions from the Nation's High Achieving Teens. 25th Annual Survey of High Achievers.
Who's Who among American High School Students, Lake Forest, IL.
This survey was conducted during the spring of 1994 for the purpose of determining the attitudes of student leaders in the nation's high schools. Eight thousand surveys were sent out to students, of which 3177 were returned. All students surveyed were members of the junior or senior class during the 1993-94 academic year. They were selected for recognition in "Who's Who" by their principals or guidance counselors, other faculty members, national youth organizations or the publishing company, because of their high achievement in academics, activities, community service, athletics or their performance in national scholarship or award contests. The survey was tabulated by computer. Questions were tabulated by total response; breakdowns by sex, race, type of school attended and type of community are also included. The survey addressed issues such as: (1) School Violence; (2) Cheating in School; (3) Sexual Behavior; (4) Sexual Harassment, Assault, and Date Rape; (5) Cigarettes, Alcohol, and Drugs; (6) Peer Pressure.
