Summary

Three fundamentals schools in Minneapolis, Minnesota were evaluated using parent, student, and teacher surveys, standardized test results, and enrollment records. Parents reported their reasons for choosing the school--the most popular reasons were its emphasis on reading, arithmetic, writing, discipline, self-contained classrooms, citizenship, and character development. Parents were generally satisfied with homework load, opportunity for involvement with teachers, their children's progress, and communication about this progress; 75% planned to enroll their children the following year. Attitudes varied widely among the three schools, but students and teachers as a group were less enthusiastic than were parents. Teachers in one school were dissatisfied with parental involvement, discipline policy, and homework completion. All schools exceeded the gains expected by a national norm group, on standardized reading and mathematics tests. (Test results and response rates of selected survey questions are included.) (CP)
