Discrepancies in Teacher and Administrator Preferences for Inservice Training Topics.
Schurr, K. Terry; And Others
A study investigating the discrepancies between teacher and administrator preferences for sixty-one inservice topics indicates that teachers perceived topics associated with motivational-attitudinal considerations to be of greater importance than did administrators and supervisors. Other differences between teachers and administrators appear to be dependent on instructional level, supervisory-administrative position, and subject matter areas. The findings recommend active involvement of teachers in the planning of inservice programs and the adaptation of programs to the various grade levels and particular subject matters. (Author/JD)
