Summary

This study reports the results of several needs assessment procedures used with teachers and principals from a random sample of 224 schools involved in the Minnesota Research and Evaluation Project during the 1971-1975 period. Data were gathered using questionnaires, goal ranking procedures, and a Curriculum Attitude Survey. Principals and teachers had somewhat different points of view on science education and the functions of secondary education. However, both groups included student self-development, basic skills, and decision making as the top three functions of secondary education during the next decade. Principals ranked instruction preparation, curriculum development, and information as the top three areas for improvement. Teachers strongly endorsed the concept of teacher institutes and curriculum development but were less supportive of the dissemination of new science curricula. (Author/BB)
