ATTITUDES TOWARD EDUCATION AND GENERAL SOCIAL ATTITUDES--A "Q" STUDY.
SMITH, INEZ L.
THREE STRUCTURED Q SORTS CONTAINING LIBERAL, CONSERVATIVE, PROGRESSIVE, AND TRADITIONALIST STATEMENTS ENABLED THE INVESTIGATOR TO TEST THE HYPOTHESIS THAT INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE LIBERAL IN THEIR SOCIAL ATTITUDES WILL TEND TO BE PROGRESSIVE IN THEIR EDUCATIONAL ATTITUDES, WHEREAS INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE CONSERVATIVE IN THEIR SOCIAL ATTITUDES WILL TEND TO BE TRADITIONALIST IN THEIR EDUCATIONAL ATTITUDES. TO ANALYZE INTRA-INDIVIDUAL AND INTER-INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES, 36 SUBJECTS WERE SELECTED, NINE REPRESENTING EACH OF THE FOUR ATTITUDES. THE HYPOTHESIS OF LIBERAL-PROGRESSIVE AND CONSERVATIVE-TRADITIONAL PATTERNS WAS GENERALLY SUPPORTED BY ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE, FACTOR ANALYSIS, AND DETERMINATION OF COEFFICIENTS OF CONGRUENCE. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION (NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 17, 1967). (JK)
