The Value Orientations and the Educational Participation of Clergymen. Progress Report.
Klever, Gerald L.
This study investigated the relationship between the value orientations and the adult education participation of clergymen, and the relationship of the extent of participation and value orientation and religious tradition. The Leisure Activity Survey and a revision of the Differential Values Inventory were administered to 55 ministers, 55 priests, and 55 rabbis in greater Chicago. Only one component of participation (Cultural) was significantly related to value orientations. Four participation components (Periodical Reading-Instructional, Instructional-Hobby, Cultural, Mass Media) were significantly related to religious tradition alone. Extent of educational participation was significantly related to value orientations but not to religious tradition. The discrepancy between hypothesized and actual relationships was caused by the differences between laymen and clergymen, previous studies having been done with church members. Researchers might test the differences in educational participation, value orientations, and religious traditions between laymen and clergy of a religious tradition. (ly)
