Developing Positive Attitudes Among Ogden City School District Personnel Toward Minorities.
Ulibarri, John E.
Recent research has proven that teachers' attitudes can be directly related to a child's success or failure in school and that teacher training institutions have resisted providing experiences with disadvantaged minority students. This study was designed to test the following hypotheses: (1) the Title IV in-service training program will have no effect on the attitudes of classified participants; (2) the Title IV in-service training program will have no effect on the attitudes of professional participants; and (3) the Title IV in-service training program will have no effect on classified and professional attitudes as a whole. A sample of 129 employees in the Ogden City School District (4 administrators, 9 principals, 87 teachers, 8 teacher aides, 5 secretaries, 12 lunch workers, 2 maintenance personnel, 1 counselor, and 1 nurse) was taken. A pretest and posttest of the Short Form, Multifactor Racial Attitude Inventory were used. Data were analyzed by a "t" test for non-correlated measures. The in-service program consisted of 3 125-hour sessions conducted every 6 months between January 1972 and June 1973. Findings indicated that positive attitude modifications in school personnel can be developed through a Title IV in-service training program; however, classified participants as a group did not show significant change.
