Deviant Adaptation as Related to Educational Goal Attainment.
Martin, W. Michael
The objective of this research was to examine the dimensions of role conflict and the mode of deviant adaptation among teachers in schools attempting to meet their goal of improvement. Relationships were found between teachers experiencing high role conflict and deviant modes of adaptation and the goal-attaining process. Teachers in schools experiencing less success in goal attainment were found to have more role conflict and were less likely to resolve the conflict than teachers in schools demonstrating higher success in the goal-attaining process. The results of the research indicated that an understanding of the nature of teacher role-personality conflict, and the resolution of that conflict, is essential to both researchers and to practicing school administrators.
