Teachers' Militancy, the Potential for It, and Perceptions of School Organizational Structure.
Gans, Thomas G.
This study examined the degree to which the structure of school organizations and the personal dispositions of teachers are related to the occurrence of militant conflict within or against school organization. This study was a part of a larger project studying the process of instituting change in school organization. A four-part questionnaire requesting information on militancy, initiative, structural openness and demography was used. This was given to participants at the conclusion of a brief interview dealing with organizational and curricular changes taking place in the school or school district. Usable questionnaires were returned by 86 percent of the sample, including 386 teachers, 71 department heads, 29 counselors, 24 administrators, and 12 others. The study demonstrated a relationship between perception of his ability to influence the school and the potential for militancy. Findings also emphasized contradictions concerning the effect of sexual roles and organizational size upon an individual's behavior. A 39-item bibliography is provided. (MJM)
