(AP) The mother of a high school .stu dent is accusing school officials of usinc psychological tests to snoop on her family's private life. | But stale education officials .say no .snooping is involved and; that the tests help plan a hetter .school curriculum. j The controversy started when Airs. John J. Hannifjan wrote to Ihe governor and the slate commissioner of education. She rnmplained that her son, John, a high school freshman, had ocen asked to comment on whether ho had a happy family life and how well lii.s parents got. "I think if'j unfair to ask children In tell ohouL their private affairs," .said Mrs. Bannijjan. "It's an invasion of privacy." Mrs. Baimigan, a housewife, also contends that psychological tests are bohiK used as a cover- up for la/.y and inefficient teachers. "My son Johnny is HeUiiifi Cs and Ds because he's not. gdtinu enough homework," .she said. "There- are too many frills in the school curriculum, and this is one of Iht-m." She said many teachers today don't give homework assignments because they're either I no la/y or t no busy yetting graduate degrees in order to ijnallly for higher xnlaricx. The testi, tho contended, are merely an excuse for putting Ihe blame, for .Johnny's grades on his /amily environment. And, she suggested, if teachers must poke inlo the domestic lives of their students, "parents may ask for ctiual t ime. and prepare tlieir own tests for teachers." Slate Department of Kducn tion officials and Manasqiinn's .sflmol psychologist dispute. Mrs. liannigan's claims. The tests are not really psy chological tests hut are used as general surveys to help plan bolter curriculum, .said Dr. J Kirk Sealon, stale director of .school psychology. "If the schools are to do a good job in teaching Ihe Ilirre Us, they must use the bcsl methods at their command, and psychological tests nre an important help," he said. Mrs. Bannlgan'i complaint centered around a contain ing a long list of hypothetical situations ranging from weight problems to home life to Ihe. si/.e cf weekly allowances. II was given to all <>()(> members of Ihr freshman class d'corge Mickotl, M;m;iM|unn school psychologist, said the students had been asked In check off only the problems thai concerned them and had been given the choice of not signing Ihrir names after Ihey had fin ished. \\ If you keep a lis! of phone numbers you call frequently, please be sure it's up to date.
