Summary

The results of a survey distributed to teachers in the West Area of the Minneapolis Public Schools concerning their preferences in the school setting indicate that teachers: (1) differ in their preferences for instructional settings, (2) prefer flexibility and variety in school curriculum, schedules, and instructional methods, (3) desire the utilization of persons other than teachers, prefer team teaching, and think students should direct some of their own learning, (4) want parents more directly involved in their childrens' education, (5) prefer their students to be the same age or grade levels, (6) prefer both active and passive instructional learning methods, (7) believe that specific basic skills should be taught in specific courses, (8) stress the importance of affective education, (9) think that student evaluation requires both the assessment of individual progress and a comparison between the individual student and same-aged students, and (10) question extensive student responsibility within the learning situation. Appendices provide both information about staff and parent preferences for alternative education programs, and the West Area Staff Survey. (BJG)
