TEACHER PERCEPTION OF PRINCIPALS' VIEWS ON VOCATIONAL EDUCATION.
MILLER, TEXTON R.
THE PRIMARY PURPOSES OF THE STUDY WERE--(1) TO DESCRIBE AND COMPARE TEACHERS' VIEWS AND THE TEACHERS' PERCEPTIONS OF THEIR PRINCIPALS' VIEWS TOWARD VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE PROGRAMS, SUPERVISED PRACTICE PROGRAMS, AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION GENERALLY, AND (2) TO DETERMINE IF THERE IS A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEACHERS' ATTITUDES AND TEACHER ADOPTION OF A NEW CONCEPT OF SUPERVISED PRACTICE. DATA WERE OBTAINED THROUGH PERSONAL INTERVIEWS OF 47 NORTH CAROLINA TEACHERS OF VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE. CONCLUSIONS WERE--(1) ATTITUDES OF TEACHERS WERE MORE POSITIVE TOWARD VOCATIONAL EDUCATION THAN THE VIEWS THEY PERCEIVED FOR THEIR PRINCIPALS, (2) VIEWPOINTS OF PRINCIPALS WERE SEEN BY TEACHERS AS VERY FAVORABLE TOWARD VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE, SUPERVISED PRACTICE, AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION GENERALLY, AND (3) THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE THAT THE DIFFERENCES IN TEACHER-PRINCIPAL VIEWPOINTS AS PERCEIVED BY THE TEACHERS WERE ASSOCIATED WITH THE LEVELS OF TEACHER ADOPTION OF THE NEW CONCEPT OF SUPERVISED PRACTICE.
