The Relationship of Sex, Level, and Position of Oregon Educators to Attitudinal Statements That Deal with Collective Negotiations and Sanctions.
Fisher, James R.
The decade of the 1960's witnessed an ever-increasing demand by members of the teaching profession for a greater voice in the determination of policies affecting the educational system. Teachers pressed for a more active role in what previously had been considered an administrative function. For this investigation of Oregon educator attitudes toward collective negotiations and sanctions, scores were obtained from a sample population comprising subsets of male and female elementary and secondary teachers, and male and female elementary and secondary principals. Correlations were run to determine the relationship between scales of Progressivism and Traditionalism, to Collective Negotiations and Sanctions. Study results indicated that, generally speaking, respondents with progressive viewpoints tended to favor collective negotiations, and vice versa; male secondary principals and female elementary teachers indicated no relationship between collective negotiations and progressivism; no significant relationship was shown to exist between collective negotiations and traditionalism (with the possible exception of male secondary teachers), and no significant relationship was found between sanctions and progressivism (with the possible exception of female secondary teachers.)
