Author(s): Shimkus, Elizabeth S.; Banilower, Eric R. Publication Date: June 2004
This study utilizes questionnaire data collected from teachers and principals in schools targeted by the LSC projects to explore the relationship between teachers' and principals' questionnaire responses on factors that influence classroom instruction. Teacher and principal questionnaire responses are compared on: their attitudes towards reform-oriented teaching; perceptions of principal support; and the effect of resource availability on mathematics/science instruction.
