Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1972 
40 p. 

The attitudes of teachers in a metropolitan area toward starting programs in applied biological and agricultural occupations and other vocational areas were studied in order to establish a base line of attitudes with which program implementation must start. Specific objectives were to: (1) determine the attitude of teachers toward offering such programs, (2) ascertain to what degree the teachers are prepared to teach such courses, (3) determine the willingness of teachers to become competent in teaching the courses, and (4) determine the willingness of teachers to teach the courses. The sample population was drawn from the target population of all secondary schools in the city of Chicago and the contiguous suburbs. Date were collected through an opinionnaire which was distributed by officials within the schools. Of the 661 teachers who received an opinionnaire, 273 completed and returned the instrument. The attitude of the teachers was very favorable, approximately one-fourth of the respondents indicated that they would be willing to help establish such a program, and some felt that they were competent to teach in each of the various areas. A related report is available as VT 016 146 in this issue. (GEB)
