Administrators' and Teachers' Reactions to Educational Innovations. An I/D/E/A Report.
Gallup Organization, Inc., Princeton, NJ.
This report is the last of a 3-part study of the readiness of parents, school board members, administrators and teachers to accept innovations in the educational system. The target group in this part of the study consisted of 307 administrators and 330 teachers. Each respondent was asked to give his reaction to 13 briefly described educational innovations and to indicate what he considered to be the most important goals of education. Findings showed that all three groups were receptive to educational changes and were convinced that teaching students how to think, how to concentrate, how to organize their work, how to analyze problems, and how to think creatively and objectively were the most important educational goals.
