Restructured Schools, Tracking Classroom Effects: Teachers' Perceptions.
Radnofsky, Mary L.; And Others
Teachers' perceptions of school restructuring were examined to determine the effects of reform on actual classroom teaching and learning processes. Interviews with 14 teachers at all school levels identified the following common themes: importance of flexible schedules; inclusion of interdisciplinary, meaningful curricula; and increased teacher control of the teaching and learning process. A recommendation is made for the inclusion of teachers' views if the goal of restructuring is enhancement of student learning. (21 references) (LMI)
