Student Perceptions of Elementary School Climates in the Louisiana School Effectiveness Study: A Comparison of Phase III and Phase IV.
Roberts, Sharon Pol; Heroman, Deborah S.
A 5-year study examined third-graders' perceptions of school climate in 16 Louisiana schools. Part of the Louisiana School Effectiveness Study (LSES), Phase III and IV examined student perceptions in 1984-85 and 1989-90, respectively, and also gathered demographic data and multiple measures of student outcomes through student surveys and classroom observations. After the 1984-85 school year, 8 of the 16 schools were classified as ineffective and 8 as effective. Five years later, three of the eight ineffective schools remained so, while three of the effective schools became ineffective. In ineffective schools, students perceived that the majority of teachers did not care if students received bad grades. Students in effective schools had a harder time seeing change and improvement than did students in ineffective schools. (MDM)
