Listening to Four Communities: Parent and Public Concerns about Middle Level Schools.
Johnston, J. Howard; Williamson, Ronald D.
NASSP Bulletin, v82 n597 p44-52 Apr 1998
Describes a study to identify the concerns, issues, and questions about middle-level education in four communities. Survey data gathered from teachers, parents, and the general public were clustered into manageable categories. Major concerns included a pervasive sense of anonymity, puzzling curriculum, lack of rigor or challenge, sociability and civility concerns, school unresponsiveness, use of teacher-centered instruction, and public-relations problems.
