Dogmatism of Indian Teacher Educators.
Raina, T. N.
This document investigates the extent, degrees, and educational implications of the dogmatism of Indian teacher educators. The study is reported to have involved 126 teacher educators in the state of Rajasthan who filled out the Dogmatic Scale (E form) by Rokeach. The document discusses the scores as to general distribution of scale scores, veteran/novice differences, educational level differences, and differences among India, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Tables are included in the text. It is concluded that the sample teacher educators proved to be exceedingly dogmatic and held attitudes inconsistent with the requirements of educational reforms implicit and inherent in the Indian democratic constitution. This conclusion, it is stated, implies that there will be difficulties in improving the nation's education. (JA)
