|Other Titles:||A Study of the Adjustment of the Senior High School Boarders from Cities Outside of Taipei|
Department od Education, NTNU
In recent years it has been witnessed that the number of the students from other areas coming to study at senior high schools in Taipei is increasing. The students are at the age of about 15-16 and physically and psychologically immature. Being far away from home, they have to live off campus, in the complicated environment. The present study was aimed at investigating the adaptability of the students to the new environment and the effects to their scholastic achievement and personality development. A questionare was sent to each of the boarders in order to“1. Recognize the percentage, find out the size of the group and their present living conditions; 2. Understand their adaptability to the new environment; and 3. Investigate the factors related to their adaptability. The responses indicate that”1. 13.58% of the senior high schoolers in Taipei are from other places in Taiwan. In spite of the undesirable living conditions, they are capable of adapting themselves to the new environment simply because of their academic interest. 2. In addition to the family relation, the teaching attitudes of the teacher, the relation with fellow students, the boarding houses, and the leisure-time activities, etc. seem to have some effects on the adaptability of the students. Based on the findings of the present study, a number of suggestions are made: 1. Parents or teachers should not blindly encourage students to study in large cities. 2. Students should be trained to be independent before leaving home; those who are now studying in Taipei should be kept in contact with and constantly consoled as well as encouraged by their parents. 3. The school authorities should pay more attention to the students who are living at the lodgings outside the school. 4. The educational authorities should plan to build boarding houses for the students from other places. 5. The junior middle school students should be guided to attend local senior high schools.
