Masters Thesis

A study of some attitudes of teachers in Fresno County, California.

According to Byron Massialas the traditional image of a teacher has been one of an older maiden lady who has de voted her entire life and love to teaching children. She was not likely to be outspoken on political issues nor influential in educational decisions. She was supposed to live a "moral" life, abstain from controversy, and train children to support the prevailing social order. She was to be compliant and in no way participative.
