Standards of dress and conduct of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are presented to the youth in a variety of ways. Although these standards are all important, the seminary youth do not consider them to have equal relevance in their own personal lives; for they are concerned with particular standards, in particular ways, and at particular times. While some attempts have been made to solicit their views pertaining to such standards, most studies to date have not dealt with material which has been published and made available to all of the youth of the Church. Since teachers are under the necessity of knowing the desires, problems, needs, and concerns of those in their charge, the writer was prompted to make this study.
The purposes of the study were: (1) to discover what the attitude of the students are concerning these standards, (2) to find if differing attitudes exist between the four high schol grade levels and boys and girls toward the standards, (3) to determine the value of the standards as viewed by the students, and (4) to compare the students' notions about general church standards to their attitude toward particular church standards.
