Attitudes toward Assertive Discipline.
Mitchell, Kay H.; And Others
The purpose of this study was to determine if there was a significant difference among attitudes of teachers in the Quitman Consolidated School District (Mississippi) toward assertive discipline when the variables of grade level, gender, and years of experience were considered. Significant differences were sought between: (1) elementary, junior high, and high school teachers; (2) attitudes of male and female teachers; and (3) attitudes of teachers with varying lengths of experience. The population of the study were 159 teachers in grades kindergarten through 12, 97 of whom responded to the survey questionnaire. Results indicated that the variables of gender and years of experience were not significantly different. Based on the results, it is concluded that junior high teachers perceive assertive discipline as more effective than do elementary or high school teachers. A large majority of junior high school teachers felt that assertive discipline had a positive effect in their classroom and on the school as a whole. (JD)
