description:
This study surveyed primary and secondary school teachers in Belgium, Great Britain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden, using the same questionnaire across all countries. France has 350 respondents, Norway 400, Germany 365, Sweden 443, the Netherlands 400, Belgium 400, and England 400. Questions in the first section of the interviews were directly related to the respondents' roles as teachers: their job satisfaction, estimates of the prestige of their jobs, comparisons of secondary and grammar school teachers and public and private school teachers, suggested educational reforms, teaching experience, and the influence of teachers as professionals on political and international affairs. In addition, respondents were asked open-ended questions probing their tolerance of political differences, their attitudes toward war, national defense efforts, and world government, their optimism or pessimism regarding international events, perceptions of other nationalities and their government's relationship with other countries, their identification of interest groups with influence in the government, and their political identification. Demographic variables include sex, age, marital status, number of children, other professional experience, and war experience.
