Teachers' Perspectives on 40 Years of Reform: The Case of the Israeli Junior High School
Tubin, Dorit; Oplatka, Izhar
Educational Studies, v36 n4 p391-402 Oct 2010
The purpose of this study is to trace junior high school teachers' perspectives regarding the strengths and weaknesses of their type of school, and to glean more information concerning their preferable type of grade configuration. To this end, 25 teachers filled out an open questionnaire and six of them were further interviewed to provide more insight into the teachers' responses. Surprisingly, most of the teachers tended to strongly support the 1-8 type elementary schools rather than the current situation of 1-6, 7-9, 10-12 in which they have ever worked. Theoretical and practical implications are suggested. (Contains 1 table.)
