Tye, Kenneth A.
Data collected from teachers participating in the Study of Schooling research project were used in this report to explore variables critical to school change. The influence of external factors on teachers, including teachers' experiences with consultants, inservice training activities, peer guidance, and educational organizations, is analyzed in the first section of this report. Teachers' interactions within the schools are examined in the second section. Teachers' attitudes related to team teaching, principals and peers, staff meetings, and perceptions of selected school problems are examined. Data presented in the third section concern personal characteristics and backgrounds of teachers that may influence the possibility of change at the school level. Teachers' attitudes toward their personal and professional growth are discussed. Implications for implementing change at the school level are reviewed. (FG)
