Statement of the Problem. The degree to which teachers participate in establishing school district policies, and the manner in which such participation is performed will be determined in large measure by the educational philosophy of the administrators and teachers ot the district. This condition may be considered as applying in various aspects of the educational program, such as classroom teaching, curriculum, and professional relations, as well as in administration. Education involves numerous interrelated and interdependent forces. One cannot effectively separate policies in any one area from the rest of the school program, since the educational philosophy of any group of professional persons is a factor in the formulation and execution of all policies.
