Principal Investigator(s): Prewitt, Kenneth, Columbia University
This study contains survey data from samples of primary and secondary school students in Tanzania in 1966 and 1967. The study focused on respondents' feelings toward the teacher and the educational system, trust in others, attitudes toward the political system, and conception of the relationship between the educational system and the economic and political systems. Several questions attempted to assess whether the students believed that an education would help them in the future with respect to employment, influencing the government, and being a good citizen. Background data such as age, race, religion, and education of parents were also collected.
