Teachers' perceptions of school climate in value-added schools
Lee, Wai Fong.
Date of Issue1998
This study seeks to find out teachers' perceptions of their school climate in two value-added schools, what they like or dislike about their school environment and the factors which shaped their perceptions. As a way of comparison, one other school which has never been on the value-added list is also included in the study. Since 1993, the Straits Times had published the ranking list of secondary schools based on the General Certificate in Education (GCE 'O' level) examination results. Schools with GCE 'O' level results which are better than the norm expected of schools with a similar quality of the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) intake are classified as value-added. The two schools selected for this study have been on the value-added list consecutively for four years, 1993 to 1996.
