Summary

In 1970, at the request of the School Board, the Minneapolis Public Schools began a review of the school district's goals. Several approaches to establishing and revising goals were used. By January 1974, 1,506 people in Minneapolis had participated in the goals ranking procedure. This group included 630 community representatives, 569 school personnel, and 307 senior high school students. Agreement among the three groups--parents, school personnel, and students--was relatively high on the importance of the various goals. All three groups gave high rankings to the goals of reading and writing, pride in work, learning to respect and get along with people with whom we work and live, and developing good character and self-respect. The three groups gave relatively low priorities to goals related to understanding skills of family living, understanding democratic ideas and ideals, understanding the ideas of health and safety, and gaining information needed to make job selections. A critique of this approach to goal ranking is given. Recommendations are made. (Author/DEP)
