Kemp, Andrew T.; Page, C. Steven; Wilson, Judi H.
SRATE Journal, v24 n1 p19-37 Fall-Win 2014
Many times, the search process is steeped in traditional methods, questions, and procedures that limit the depth and scope of a search. The purpose of this study was to examine the beliefs of faculty in colleges of education for the purpose of gaining a better understanding of what early childhood faculty believe. What was discovered was there is a generally homogenous view of the purposes of education. Yet, there were differences in beliefs with regard to gender, race, university size and rank which allowed for recommendations on lines of inquiry as to beliefs.
