The Impact of Setting and Size on a School's Culture and Climate.
Bulach, Cletus R.; Williams, Ronnie
This research investigated the impact of school setting and size on the culture and climate of a school. Twenty-five schools and 1,163 teachers were involved in the study. There was a significant negative correlation between school size and the school's culture and climate. Other findings were that elementary schools had more positive climates than middle and high schools, and urban schools had less positive climates than rural and suburban. (Contains 14 references and six tables of ANOVA and descriptive statistics. An appendix lists definitions of variables that measure school culture and school climate.) (Author/WFA)
