The structure of attitudes toward services rendered by state departments was studied in six southeastern states with a 70-item scale. Development procedures are described. The scale was administered to randomly chosen samples of superintendents (N = 671), central office personnel (N = 404), principals (N = 627), teachers (N = 3,684), and other local personnel (N = 373). Data from each group were factored and studied for dimensionality. The two factors common to all groups consisted, respectively, of positively and negatively worded items despite the fact that the instrument was developed in a way intended to minimize response set factors. A third factor dealt with university-state relationships.
