Elementary School Science Programs: Pupil and Teacher Attitudes.
Jenkins, Jerry A.
This study attempted to investigate whether affective differences existed among teachers and pupils relative to the science programs offered within their schools. The results of the study revealed that only a moderate degree of satisfaction exists among teachers and pupils toward their science programs. None of the programs, either commercially available or locally developed, indicated any overall significant differences in test scores. In addition, the interest demonstrated by pupils and teachers toward science was quite low. (Author/CP)
