The purpose of this study was to determine the
attitudes of local school board members, division superintendents,
local elected officials, state department of
education personnel, and state legislators towards the
approach taken to improve the public schools in Virginia
by the enactment of state mandated standards of quality.
A questionnaire was developed and mailed to all
division superintendents in Virginia, all the members of
the General Assembly, those state department of education
personnel responsible for the standards of quality, and
random samples of school board members and local elected
officials. The questionnaire was designed to determine
the respondents' attitudes on the improvement effected by
the implementation of the standards of quality, the loss
of local control involved, and the attendant increases in
local expenditures. Respondents who perceived an improvement were asked if they believed the improvements were
worth the costs involved.
