Teacher Pupil Control Ideology--Behavior Congruence and Job Satisfaction.
Willower, Donald J.; Heckert, J. Wayne
The hypothesis that teacher pupil control ideology-behavior congruence would be positively related to teacher job satisfaction was tested. The rationale for the hypothesis was that teachers whose beliefs and behaviors concerning pupil control were consistent would be likely to be contented with their work. Pupil control was seen as a central aspect of the work of teachers. Data were gathered on 95 teachers in four schools. The hypothesis could not be rejected. Additional analyses replicated past work on congruence of perceived colleague and self pupil control ideology and job satisfaction. (Authors)
