Choices of Students, Parents, and Teachers and Their Effects on Schools and Communities: A Case Study of a New Enriched High School Program
DiGiorgio, Carla
Journal of School Choice, v4 n3 p278-292 2010
This study is an ethnographic case study of two schools as they implemented an enrichment program. The sample included students, parents, teachers, school administrators, and board and government personnel. Data was drawn from interviews and observations of participants, curriculum analysis, and communication between school, home, and the public. The study found the following: (a) motivation to enter the program came largely from parents, (b) participating educators perceived changes to their stature in the school and a lack of creativity in course planning and execution, and (c) international and local students had differing academic and social experiences.
