Planning for Change: A Study of Attitudes and Expectations. Southern Tier Educational Planning Study Report #2: Interviews.
Western New York School Development Council, Williamsville.
Results of interviews with 167 school administrators, teacher association presidents, and chief school officers in three New York counties indicate that Southern Tier educators favor educational change, but are hampered in planning by insufficient financial support, apathy and resistance, and inadequate organizational structures. Specific conclusions are: (1) there were few systematic longrange plans based on well-defined goals, (2) evaluation and accountability received little emphasis as a main concern of respondents, (3) respondents generally agreed on the importance of regional cooperation but disagreed on what the areas of cooperation should be, and (4) respondents were concerned about their influence on educational change within their school systems.
