Abstract

Discusses the finding of L. T. Benjamin et al (see record 1978-30211-001) that many high school students who wanted to study psychology in college had an inaccurate view of the field of psychology. Results are presented from a survey of 194 teachers in secondary schools that assessed the impact of a 1977 New Jersey law requiring precollege psychology teachers to have a certification endorsement in psychology. 99 principals of schools that did not offer psychology courses also responded.
