dc.description.abstract The study was designed to compare the nature and extent of teacher participation in decision making in self contained and team teaching elementary schools. The sample for data gathering consisted of 81 teachers and 17 principals from 17 self contained elementary schools and 94 teachers and principals from 18 team teaching elementary schools in Indiana. Professional personnel from 15 school districts participated in the study.Data for the study were secured by means of responses given to a questionnaire. The instrument consisted of 24 decisional situations to which each subject was requested to indicate current and desired participation. Decisional items were grouped as administrative decisions and instructional decisions.Data were analyzed statistically. Hypotheses concerning teacher-characteristics and teacher decisional participation relative to the two types of school organizations were analyzed through an analysis of covariance. The Pearson-Product Moment Correlation Coefficient was used to test the relationship of teacher-characteristics of the total number of respondents to six decisional variables. en_US
