Teacher Perceptions of Levels of Professional Contribution to the School
Roby, Douglas E.
College Student Journal, v43 n3 p852-859 Sep 2009
Teachers enrolled in graduate level coursework at Wright State University, in Dayton, Ohio were surveyed as to their perception of the extent of faculty involvement and professional contribution in their school. Teachers and educators that were administrators were the focus of the study. Professional contribution levels were defined for the participants. An analysis of the survey results indicated that levels of contribution fluctuated. Variables affecting contribution levels included, but were not limited to political climate, self-perception, morale, leadership style, knowledge base, teamwork, and having a definite purpose or mission. Seventy teachers were involved in the study, working full-time, with the majority being females working in public elementary schools in rural, suburban, and city school systems in Ohio.
