Summary

As part of the Minneapolis Public Schools' desegregation/integration plan, boundary changes for Jordan Junior High's elementary feeder schools were implemented for the 1973-74 school year. Incoming seventh graders, who previously would have attended another junior high, changed the percentage of minority group students in seventh grade from 12 percent in 1972-73 to 42 percent in 1973-74. In the spring of 1974, a sample of 15 percent of the parents of seventh and eighth grade students were interviewed in their homes to determine their feelings about the educational program at Jordan. Overall, the parents were satisfied with Jordan's educational program. The results were similar for seventh and eighth grade parents and for parents of Black and White students. About 90 percent of the parents were satisfied with how much their child was learning in reading, mathematics, and other subjects; about 80 percent expressed satisfaction with the kinds of courses provided, the activities other than courses that were provided, the way the subject matter was taught, and the way their child had been treated by the Jordan staff. Almost all parents said they were satisfied with how well their child was getting along with other students at Jordan. (Author/DEP)
