Uniformity and Variability in the Organizational Characteristics of Elementary Schools.
Eidell, Terry L.; And Others
Written responses from teachers in 12 elementary schools located in six school districts in three states provided data for this exploratory report. Four instruments provided the basis for the questionnaires: job satisfaction, pupil control ideology, reference group orientation, and leadership. Few interpretations are offered on the results of trying to assess the uniformity and variability of four sub-samples on eight variables. Some evidence of variation according to geographical location was found on instrumental satisfaction, pupil control ideology, reference group orientation, and production emphasis. The greatest differences, both in magnitude and in frequency of occurrence, were found between the experimental sub-samples. Differences were rather small, and consistently so, on comparisons between each experimental sub-sample and its control sub-sample. (Author/GO)
