The Perceptions of Pennsylvania Principals and Counselors on the Issue of Student Rights.
Schwab, James D.
The purpose of this research study was to determine the opinions of school principals and school counselors in Pennsylvania on the issue of student rights. A 30-statement opinion questionnaire was constructed and mailed to 171 counselors and 154 principals in 48 public school districts widely distributed throughout Pennsylvania. The response rate was 73 percent. The responses of principals and counselors, on both the elementary and secondary levels, were compared and analyzed. Variables such as geographical area and school district size had some influence on the opinions of counselors and principals. Overall, principals had a more positive opinion than counselors concerning school rules and how to change them. Elementary counselors and principals were generally more concerned about student rights than were their colleagues on the secondary level. (Author/MLF)
