Organizational Influence on Value Systems.
Hodgkinson, Christropher
This paper examines the relationship between organizational climate and the values held by teaching staffs and administrators. To test a number of hypotheses bearing on this relationship, a sample population of 707 teachers and administrators was drawn from a random selection of public elementary schools in metropolitan Vancouver. The position is developed that organizations do in fact influence individual value systems although the influence is bifid and interactional. The empirical research suggests a theory of "organizational value" which can be outlined in brief. The exploration of the values/organization relationship is especially pertinent to education considered as a value-propagating institution. (Author/MLF)
