Inner-City High School Teachers: Their Perceptions of Classroom Life as Revealed Through a Content Analysis of Projective Stories.
Parkay, Forrest W.
Through a content analysis of the projective stories written by a randomly selected group of teachers at an all black Chicago high school, this study revealed teachers' perceptions of life at the school. The study demonstrated that ghetto teachers vary greatly in their perceptions and appraisals of their shared teaching environment, and that the differences are somewhat related to race and sex. The stories of black teachers were found to contain more student and group directed negative judgements than those of white teachers. In addition, the stories of female teachers were found to contain more negative statements than did those of the male teachers. (Author/APM)
