12 p. 

This research study sought to examine the degree of heterophily which was indicated between principals and teachers regarding the perceived adequacy of school conditions. The sample comprised principals and teachers randomly selected from five regions. Three of the regions focused on science teachers while the other two involved mathematics teachers. These regions included 15 states scattered throughout the western three-fourths of the country. The questionnaire included 27 Likert-type items which asked respondents to rate aspects of their instructional setting. Items were clustered to assess teacher effectiveness, teaching load, curriculum facilities and support staff. Multivariate and univariate analysis of variance were used to analyze data. Results showed that principals possessed a more positive view of teaching conditions than did science and mathematics teachers. Also, four of the five comparisons were significant. It was concluded that the two groups of principals and teachers were heterophilous. (HM)
