Perceptions of the Teaching Profession and Educational Reform: Comparisons of Laboratory School Teachers, State Teachers of the Year and Teachers in Southeast Georgia.
Page, Fred M., Jr.; Page, Jane A.
This study was designed to elicit information relative to teaching as a career opportunity and in regard to a variety of educational reform issues. A wide range of descriptive data is available on these topics. Studies that offer national perspectives and statewide views are available in many areas. This study depicts responses from three different categories of teachers: laboratory school teachers, state teachers of the year, and teachers from southeast Georgia. Specific questions addressed by this research are: (1) How do these teachers perceive the teaching profession as a career opportunity? (2) How do these teachers perceive various proposals for educational reform? and (3) Do these teachers, when compared with each other, differ in their perceptions of the teaching profession and educational reform?
