High school principals, guidance counselors, and physics teachers in the state of Wisconsin have been surveyed to determine their respective attitudes toward physics in the high school curriculum. The techniques for determining these attitudes are given. For comparison, attitudes toward biology and chemistry are also determined. The results indicate that the physics community should make a greater effort to inform principals and guidance counselors as to the value of physics in the high school curriculum.
