Teachers' and School Administrators' Perceptions of Holistic Education on Preparing More Responsible Students across All Domains for Life
As initiative after initiative is created to improve education in order to compete in the social and economic constructs of our world, and as we are experiencing more and more social discord in our nation, perhaps the reforms are shortsighted in that they are not fully addressing the wide ranging needs of our youth. Perhaps by thinking differently about how we educate children and by moving towards a more holistic model of education, we may produce the results that decades of reforms have failed to produce. This study examines educator perceptions of holistic education through a concurrent triangulation mixed methods design. Quantitative findings reveal statistically significant differences in the perceptions of educators regarding holistic education based on role: teacher or school administrator. The study also established themes regarding educators’ perceptions of holistic education that can be used to guide further development of holistic education in public school settings.
