|Setting the Stage||In May 1991,
a 16 page survey was mailed to a random sample of 500 Saskatchewan educators
and it garnered a response rate of 41%. Both open-ended and closed response
items were included. The open-ended questions were content analyzed for
topic, sentiment, and strength of sentiment. The closed response items
were used to generate descriptive statistics.
The primary goals of the research were to examine educators' attitudes toward elementary and secondary schools and provide a base of information which could be used for policy decisions.
