SOME BEHAVIORAL CORRELATES OF ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATES AND CULTURES.
HAMATY, GEORGE G.
THE INFLUENCE OF SCHOOL CULTURES (CONVENTIONAL, WORK, AND IMPULSE EXPRESSION) ON SELECTED PUPIL AND TEACHER BEHAVIOR VARIABLES WAS STUDIED. THE VARIABLES INCLUDED PUPIL ACHIEVEMENT, TEACHER AND PUPIL ABSENTEEISM, AND TEACHER TURNOVER. ALSO STUDIED WAS THE SOCIOECONOMIC LEVEL OF SCHOOL NEIGHBORHOODS AS RELATED TO SCHOOL CULTURE. TEACHERS AND PUPILS OF 40 SCHOOLS IN A LARGE URBAN SCHOOL SYSTEM SERVED AS THE SAMPLE. THE INSTRUMENTS EMPLOYED IN THE STUDY INCLUDED (1) THE ACTIVITIES INDEX AND THE ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATE INDEX FOR TEACHER RESPONSE, (2) THE IOWA TESTS OF BASIC SKILLS AND OF EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR PUPIL RESPONSE, AND (3) A SOCIOECONOMIC AREAS INDEX. THE CONCLUSIONS WERE THAT (1) THE SOCIOECONOMIC LEVEL OF THE SCHOOL NEIGHBORHOOD DOES NOT AFFECT THE CULTURE OF THE SCHOOL, AND (2) RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PUPIL-TEACHER BEHAVIORS AND SCHOOL CULTURE WERE NEGLIGIBLE IN ALL CASES EXCEPT FOR PUPIL ABSENTEEISM.
