School Climate: Changing Fear to Fun.
Hanna, James W.
Contemporary Education, v69 n2 p83-85 Win 1998
Surveyed middle school principals to examine middle level programmatic characteristics, appropriateness, and current implementation. The study also examined teachers' perceptions of school climate. Program implementation, rather than principal's perceptions, affected school climate. Intramural programs affected school climate, influencing teacher-student relations, parent and school-community relations, and instructional management. (SM)
