Value/Belief Patterns of Teachers and Those Administrators Engaged in Attempts to Influence Teaching. Research Series No. 43.
Ignatovich, Frederick R.; And Others
An investigation utilizing Q-methodology identifies and analyzes beliefs about teaching, learning, and classroom organization of classroom teachers, elementary school principals, and administrators who attempt to influence classroom procedure through the implementation of rational management models. The findings suggest that points of conflict between these groups issue from deeply rooted attitudes concerning the nature of managing children in an educational context, a variable dependent on an individual's relative proximity to the actual classroom situation.
