A Survey of the Foreign Language Background and Attitudes of Principals in Washington State Secondary Schools.
This survey, conducted in 1966 by the Washington Foreign Language Program, analyzes the possible effect of the secondary school principal on language programs directly or indirectly attributable to his foreign language background and attitudes. Some 369 questionnaires returned by the principals provided information concerning biographical data, foreign language background, foreign language programs in the schools, and foreign language opinion. Concluding remarks based on analysis of tables in this report suggest that foreign language study on the part of the principal has no consistent effect on the foreign language program in his school nor his attitudes toward foreign languages in general. However, the attitudes of a principal toward the study of foreign languages do influence his foreign language program. (RL)
