Teaching in Chapter 1 Schools: Public School Teachers' Perceptions of Resources, Discipline, and Support. Chapter 1 Data from the Schools and Staffing Survey.
Anderson, Judith I.; And Others
A study was done of teachers' perceptions of support, resources, empowerment, autonomy, and discipline problems in Chapter 1 and non-Chapter 1 schools. The study used data from the Schools and Staffing Survey. Overall, most teachers in elementary schools, middle schools, junior high schools, and senior high schools with Chapter 1 programs agree that the administrative support and school climate in their school are positive. However, approximately 50 percent of the teachers in all 3 levels of Chapter 1 schools report that student misbehavior is a problem, and less than 50 percent believe that they have a high degree of influence over determining discipline policy. The study found few differences among teachers in Chapter 1 schools and those in non-Chapter 1 schools. In elementary schools, teachers in Chapter 1 schools have lower perceptions of parental support and report serious or moderate discipline problems more often than do teachers in non-Chapter 1 schools. However, some perceptions were more positive among teachers in Chapter 1 schools at the elementary school level than they were among teachers in non-Chapter 1 schools. Middle school, junior high school, and senior high school teachers in non-chapter 1 schools have roughly the same perceptions as do their counterparts in Chapter 1 schools. Included are 39 bar graphs, 24 tables, and an appendix containing 24 tables of unweighted data and standard errors and confidence intervals for estimates. (JB)
