Racial origin and withdrawal from university by J. Paul Grayson( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined voluntary and involuntary withdrawal rates of students of various racial origins at York University in Ontario (Canada). Data were obtained from three surveys of first-year students conducted in 1993, 1994, and 1995, and involving 1,864 students. Information on Ontario Academic Credit (oac) marks, first year grade point averages (GPAs), and enrollment status at the beginning of the second year was obtained from school records. It was found that differences in retention rates for Blacks and students of South Asian, Chinese, "other" non-European, and European origins were small. Only gender, perceptions of the value of a degree, a belief that students will return for a second year, and gpa were of utility in predicting voluntary withdrawal at the end of the first year. Increased hours of employment and living in temporary accommodations contributed to involuntary withdrawal. Similarly, being Black or of "other" racial origin also had a slight effect on the probability of not returning for a second year. (Contains 48 references.) (Mdm)
Public attitudes toward education for the 'gifted' in Ontario by J. Paul Grayson( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report discusses the findings of a survey that asked 1,048 Ontario residents whether special enrichment classes should be provided to bright students at any cost, whether bright students should be provided with special enrichment classes only if resources are not taken away from classes of average students, or if bright students should not be provided with special enrichment classes at all. Results found: (1) the majority (63 percent) of participants gave only qualified support for special gifted education, 19 percent gave no support, and only 13 percent gave full support to education for the gifted; (2) those aged 60 or older were more inclined than others to give no support to special education for the gifted; (3) no differences were found between public and separate school supporters; (4) the lower the education of the participant, the greater the tendency not to support special education for the gifted; and (5) the higher the income the smaller the percentage giving no support to education for the gifted. (Contains 8 figures and 14 references.) (Cr)
