Are Educators More Sex-Role Biased than Other Americans?: A Comparative National Study of Attitudes Among Teachers and Other Occupational Groups.
Lacy, William B.; And Others
This research investigates the sex role attitudes of teachers, administrators, and other occupational groups. Respondents' sex role attitudes were measured in the areas of home, children, work, and politics. The results indicate that teachers may be less prejudiced than most occupational groups but are similar in sex role attitudes to other professionals. Within the teaching profession, kindergarten and elementary teachers appear slightly more biased than secondary school teachers and administrators. Implications of the findings are discussed.
