School Superintendents' Attitudes Toward Community Participation in and Control of Curriculum and Related School Management Issues.
Talmage, Harriet; Ornstein, Allan C.
Superintendents' attitudes toward community participation in and control of curriculum issues in relation to the current demands for a broad base in school decision-making are examined. It is hypothesized that superintendents will differ in their attitudes on participation and control in four areas of school decision-making. Certain characteristics of the school system will influence these attitudes. The attitudes of superintendents in systems of 15,000 or over were obtained using a 40-item instrument. Statistically significant differences were observed between attitudes on community participation and community control and attitudinal differences associated with size of school system and school setting (city/suburban).
