A Comparison of Korean and American Students' Attitudes about School.
Moon, Soo-Back; And Others
Students from the United States were compared with similar students from South Korea regarding their attitudes toward school, their perceived responsibility for learning, and their perceived relationships with teachers. Data were collected from 305 female and 301 male students in grades 7-12 in Korean middle schools and high schools through the use of Korean translations of instruments developed by R. E. Bills and others to assess affect. Findings were compared with those from the Bills 1978 data for the measures (Feelings about School, Locus of Responsibility, and Relationship Inventory) for more than 65,000 U.S. students. The data suggest that American students have a more positive attitude toward school, a more positively perceived responsibility for learning, and a more favorable relationship with their teachers than do Korean students. While American female students are more positive, male Korean students tend to have more positive attitudes. Four tables present study findings. (Contains 31 references.) (SLD)
