Resistance to Change: An Alternative Story.
Rusch, Edith; Perry, Eleanor
International Journal of Educational Reform, v8 n3 p285-300 Jul 1999
Describes a followup study to previous research into midcareer educators' tendencies to label older colleagues as resisters to Oregon schools' restructuring efforts. Results show that such attitudes stigmatize individuals and inhibit their responses in ways that hamper the change process. More respect for lifelong professional learning is needed.
