Organizational Climate and Attitudes Toward Educational Change: A Case Study.
Brumbaugh, Robert B.; Christ, Henry J.
Consultants in change agent roles frequently overlook the importance of adequate descriptive data on the target systems they seek to influence. The state of an organization's health may operate to nullify the best of planned intervention efforts. Survey data from a large, nonpublic, metropolitan high school provided consultants from the Center with a favorable prognosis for planned change efforts in the school. Staff and administration attitudes toward six areas of possible educational change are predicted from scores on the eight subtests of Halpin's Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire.
