An Investigation of the Attitudes of Elementary School Administrators and Teachers of the Hawaii English Project's Language Skills Program.
Enoki, Donald Yukio
The purposes of this study were to determine the attitudes of administrators and teachers toward the Hawaii English Project's Language Skills Program; to identify reasons for their support or non-support; and to determine whether administrators, through their experiences with the program, prefer the centralized system of curricular control or a more decentralized role in deciding instructional programs. The research data were gathered through the utilization of a survey questionnaire specifically developed for this study and administered to both teachers and administrators in the Honolulu School District who were involved in implementing the program. Several major conclusions were drawn from the data. The majority of both groups in the study was very much in favor of continuing the program; the teachers and principals overwhelmingly agreed with the program's goals, objectives, and philosophy; ninety-seven percent of the principals viewed their primary role as that of a curricular leader; nearly all the principals believed that the decision for implementing curricular programs should be left to the school; and only one-half expressed their support for expanding the program vertically through the sixth grade.
