DIFFERENCES IN PERCEPTION OF CITIZENS AND TEACHERS ABOUT EDUCATIONAL ISSUES.
BARDWELL, ROGER W.
ALL PROFESSIONAL TEACHING PERSONNEL AND A RANDOM SAMPLE OF CITIZENS FROM AN EASTERN WISCONSIN SUBURB AND A NORTHWESTERN WISCONSIN RURAL COMMUNITY WERE SURVEYED BY AN 88 ITEM OPINION QUESTIONNAIRE TO COMPARE THE PERCEPTIONS OF TEACHERS AND CITIZENS IN REGARD TO PROBLEMS AND ISSUES OF EDUCATIONAL VIEWPOINT, THE TASK OF THE SCHOOL, AND DIFFERENTIAL COMPENSATION FOR TEACHERS. THERE WERE NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN OVERALL PERCEPTIONS OF THESE PROBLEMS AND ISSUES BETWEEN THE GROUPS OF TEACHERS IN THE TWO COMMUNITIES. THE FOUR GROUPS OF TEACHERS AND CITIZENS DID NOT SHOW A SIGNIFICANT DEGREE OF CONSISTENCY IN PERCEIVING PROBLEMS OF EDUCATIONAL VIEWPOINT. ONLY IN THE SUBURBAN COMMUNITY DID CITIZENS AND TEACHERS DIFFER SIGNIFICANTLY AS TO THE TASK OF THE SCHOOL. ALTHOUGH NEITHER CITIZENS NOR TEACHERS FAVORED DIFFERENTIAL TEACHER SALARIES, NOR DIFFERED GREATLY IN PERCEPTIONS OF THE TEACHING PROCESS, THE TWO GROUPS DIFFERED SIGNIFICANTLY IN PERCEPTIONS OF GENERAL SALARY PROBLEMS.
