A Survey of Attitudes Held By School Administrators Toward Blind Teacher Applicants.
Restad, Raymond O.
This study focused on the general attitudes held by school administrators toward the blind teacher. A two-part questionnaire, consisting of 13 descriptive items and a 10-item attitude scale, was completed by 553 elementary and secondary school administrators in the state of Minnesota. A frequency distribution was compiled to show degrees of attitudes and a Chi-Square analysis was made to compare groups of administrators. Attitudes were compared on the basis of administrator's age, highest degree held, geographic area from which the degree was earned, the type of school where the administrator was located, the level of his school, the population of the community in which he worked, and the degree of experience he had working with blind teachers. The responses indicated a positive attitude toward blind teachers. The level of education of the administrators and the degree of experience they had working with blind teachers were the two factors which resulted in differentiating attitudes. Administrators with the most education tended to be more positive in their view of employing teachers. Administrators with prior experience with blind teachers also tended to be more positive. (The survey questionnaire and 22 tables of statistical data are included.) (Author/BRB)
