Teacher Efficacy and Character Education.
Milson, Andrew J.
This study applies the teacher efficacy construct to the domain of character development in order to describe the efficacy beliefs of practicing elementary level teachers regarding character education. The Character Development Efficacy Belief Instrument, developed and validated by the researchers, was distributed to a sample of 767 elementary teachers in a large midwestern suburban school district. The results suggest that elementary teachers feel efficacious regarding most aspects of character education and that teachers who earned their undergraduate degrees from private, religiously affiliated universities have a greater sense of efficacy for character development. These findings suggest that programs in private, religiously affiliated universities might serve as a model for preparing teachers for character education. The survey instrument is attached.
