The Values and Value Systems of Educational Administrators.
Sikula, Andrew F.; Sikula, John P.
This speech reports on a study of 62 educational administrators that supplies empirical evidence in support of the contention that there are significantly different profiles associated with different occupational-career groups. Utilizing the Rokeach Value Survey Form D, the authors surveyed and compared the value configurations of 12 distinct groups and found that the profile of educational administrators differed significantly from other occupational-career and managerial groups. Educational administrators revealed that their goals or end-states of existence (terminal values) were relatively idealistic and abstract in nature while their methodology or means of achieving (instrumental values) the end-states were of much less relative concern.
