Attitudes of Future Administrators Toward the Handicapped.
Lazar, Alfred L.; And Others
Three instruments measuring different kinds of attitudes were utilized to study whether sex differences existed among university students (34 males and 17 females) in school administration. The Attitude Towards Handicapped Individuals Scale was used to measure attitudes of acceptance or rejection of handicapped individuals; the Is of Identity Scale was used to measure social adjustment; and the Preferred Student Characteristics Scale was used to assess affective and cognitive attitudes toward instructional goals. Results indicated that sex is not a significant factor in equal acceptance of the handicapped or in the affective/cognitive goals desired by future administrators and that personal adjustment to administrative roles would be similar for both males and females.
