APPLICABILITY OF THE BUREAUCRATIC MODEL TO THE ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE OF THE SCHOOL.
ANDERSON, JAMES G.
THE STUDY OBJECTIVES WERE (1) TO EXAMINE THE DEVELOPMENT AND FUNCTIONING OF RULES WITHIN THE SCHOOL, (2) TO DETERMINE WHETHER CERTAIN LATENT BUREAUCRATIC CHARACTERISTICS EXIST IN THE SCHOOL AND THEIR RELATION TO RULES, AND (3) TO DEVELOP LIKERT SCALES, TO MEASURE CERTAIN STRUCTURAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SCHOOL AND LATENT CHARACTERISTICS OF TEACHERS. A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS DEVELOPED AND ADMINISTERED TO 152 JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS IN THE BALTIMORE CITY SCHOOLS TO OBTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT TEACHERS' APPROACHES TO INSTRUCTION, THEIR ATTITUDES TOWARD TEACHER UNIONS, NEW CURRICULUM, AND NEW TEACHING TECHNIQUES, AND THEIR EXPERIENCE AND TENURE STATUS IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. TWENTY-SIX DEPARTMENT HEADS, CHAIRMEN, AND PRINCIPALS COMPLETED A QUESTIONNAIRE CONCERNING INSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURES AND RULES EXISTING IN DEPARTMENTS. FINDINGS INCLUDED 39 SPECIFIC STATEMENTS GROUPED IN 9 CATEGORIES, SUCH AS "SOCIOECONOMIC LEVEL OF THE STUDENT BODY,""BUREAUCRATICALLY DEFINED TEACHER COMPETENCE," AND "AUTHORITY CONFLICT." (JM)
