Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Perceptions of non-traditional programs within Missouri school districts
by Norman, Cherie L., Ed.D., Lindenwood University, 2015, 126; 3737273
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to analyze perceptions of Missouri public school administrators regarding twenty-first century learning skills in choice and innovative schools, and to report the research-based best practices those schools are using with students. For this study, qualitative data were collected through a questionnaire and then coded for analysis (Fraenkel et. al, 2014). The questionnaire, used to elicit information from 10 administrators of Missouri public schools housing a choice or innovation program, was the anchor of the research design. The results of this study indicated choice and innovative schools are incorporating a combination of current research-based practices in programming. The significance of this research is the reference, made available to educators, of current research-based practices being used to accommodate the changing needs of students in classrooms across the United States (Livingston, 2013).
