Summary

In the spring of 1975, three alternative secondary schools in the Federation of Alternative Schools, with the help of the Minneapolis Public Schools' Research and Evaluation Department, surveyed their students. The 66-item questionnaire, which was developed to provide an overall assessment of student attitudes and information for program improvement, was completed by more than 75 percent of the students enrolled in the three schools. Results showed that more than 80 percent of the respondents indicated that their alternative school was relevant; 90 percent said their teachers understood them, liked them, were fair to them, and showed an interest in them; the majority were satisfied with how much they were learning and they learned more this year than previously; and the majority felt their school helped them in cognitive and affective learning areas. Seventeen of the items were included in a 1972 survey. 1975 students responded more favorably on all items, but several interpretation cautions were noted. If positive attitudes toward school can serve as a means to school effectiveness, alternative schools appear to have some potential for effecting the attainment of other student educational outcomes.
