Pupil Control As an Institutional Pattern.
Longo, Paul
This study of pupil control attitudes was based on the assumption that public school teachers and college education instructors hold divergent views on pupil control. These divergent views would then be imposed on the preservice teachers. The Pupil Control Ideology (PCI) Scale and the Dogmatism Scale, Form E, were randomly distributed to 100 teachers from the education department at Queens College, New York and 100 cooperating teachers in the public schools. Each of these groups was divided into early childhood, elementary, and secondary subgroups. Three hypotheses were tested: I-college teachers would register a more humanistic approach to pupil control on the PCI; II-significant differences would appear among similar college and public school subgroups but not among subgroups within the college itself; and III-a positive relationship would be shown between dogmatism and pupil control. Results showed confirmation of Hypotheses I and III; Hypothesis II was not confirmed. (The results of the study are discussed, stressing a need for agreement among college instructors and cooperating teachers on pupil control.) (BRB)
