This article is based on a dissertation submitted by Linda G. DePiano to the University of South Carolina in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the PhD degree. We wish to express our appreciation to Tom Cafferty, Frank DePiano, and Ginger McClure for their support and suggestions in conducting this study and to acknowledge the generous cooperation of the South Carolina School Advisory Council Assistance Project and their sponsor, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. A special debt of gratitude is owed to Abe Wandersman and Rudolph Moos for their encouragement and feedback during the development of this paper and to Bill Carson who supported our research goals under the most adverse circumstances.
