THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEACHER MORALE AND ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATE.
KOPLYAY, JANOS; MATHIS, B. CLAUDE
TO INVESTIGATE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEACHER MORALE AND ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATE, 299 ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS IN SUBURBAN CHICAGO SCHOOLS WERE GIVEN (1) THE 50-ITEM CHANDLER-MATHIS ATTITUDE INVENTORY, WHICH MEASURES LEVEL OF MORALE WITH RESPECT TO SELF, SCHOOL, COMMUNITY, ADMINISTRATION, AND POLICY, AND (2) THE ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATE DESCRIPTION QUESTIONNAIRE (OCDQ), WHICH MEASURES DEGREE OF OPENNESS OR CLOSEDNESS IN EIGHT FEATURES OF SCHOOL CLIMATE--DISENGAGEMENT, HINDRANCE, ESPRIT, INTIMACY, ALOOFNESS, PRODUCTION EMPHASIS, THRUST, AND CONSIDERATION. TEST SCORES WERE ANALYZED IN RELATION TO YEARS TEACHING, YEARS TEACHING IN PRESENT SCHOOL, AND SALARY. THE RESULTS SUGGEST THAT AN "OPEN" CLIMATE IS ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH MORALE REGARDLESS OF TYPE OF SALARY SCHEDULE. IN "CLOSED" CLIMATE SCHOOLS, HOWEVER, HIGHER MORALE WAS FOUND IN SCHOOLS WITH MERIT, RATHER THAN NONMERIT, SALARY SCHEDULES. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION (NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 10, 1967). (LC)
