Florida Education Opinionnaire.
Curran, Robert L.; Gordon, Ira J.
The Florida Education Opinionnaire (FEO) was designed to determine the belief system of American educators. It consists of 24 statements of educational objectives and techniques to which the subject responds on a scale of 1 to 5, strongly agree to strongly disagree. The instrument requires no special skills for its administration or scoring and both can be accomplished by the subject himself. The subject's bias toward one of two educational doctrines, cooperative democracy or competitive democracy, is revealed by his total score on the FEO. It is suggested that the subject classify himself according to the professional-social variables and then compare his score on the FEO with the means of the groups of educators thus differentiated in the related study (TM 000 293). The validity of the instrument is supported by its capacity to reliably discriminate among groups adhering to different educational philosophies. (PR)
