SITUATIONAL FACTORS INFLUENCING QUALITY TEACHING. EXPLORATORY PHASE--TEACHER IDENTIFICATION OF FACTORS - CONDITIONS, CLIMATE, COMPETENCIES - INFLUENCING THE TEACHING-LEARNING PROCESS IN KENTUCKY PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
ELSWICK, D.E.; AND OTHERS
A SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED TO IDENTIFY AND EVALUATE BOTH POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE SITUATIONAL FACTORS IN THE TEACHING-LEARNING PROCESS. RESPONSES WERE ANALYZED FROM 29 OF KENTUCKY'S 203 COUNTY AND INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICTS, REPRESENTING 877 ELEMENTARY TEACHERS, 454 SECONDARY TEACHERS, AND 48 ADMINISTRATIVE AND SUPERVISORY PERSONNEL. THE REPORT'S MAJOR SECTION, A COMPREHENSIVE STATE SUMMARY, RANKS FACTORS IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE AS INDICATED BY THE THREE GROUPS OF RESPONDENTS. TEACHING CONDITIONS, PROFESSIONAL LEADERSHIP, ADEQUATE INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, AND BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES ARE GENERALLY REGARDED AS MOST IMPORTANT. FACTORS RELATED TO SALARY ARE REGARDED AS LEAST IMPORTANT. SUMMARY RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDE SUGGESTIONS FOR (1) DEVELOPMENT OF INSERVICE ACTIVITIES REQUESTED BY TEACHERS, (2) BUDGET ALLOTMENTS FOR EXPENDITURES THAT WILL CONTRIBUTE MOST EFFECTIVELY TO IMPROVEMENT OF INSTRUCTION, AND (3) REFINEMENT OF THIS RESEARCH DESIGN FOR A MORE INCLUSIVE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT. A REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT REPORT IS INCLUDED, ILLUSTRATING THE PROCEDURE FOLLOWED FOR WEIGHTING OF CODING CATEGORIES TO ALLOW RESPONSE RANKING. (JK)
