Abstract

Pre-service teachers enter teacher preparation programs with beliefs about how students and teachers should interact in the classroom. Willower, Eidell, and Hoy (1967) categorized these beliefs into pupil control ideologies (PCI), which were identified as more or less humanistic or custodial. Many researchers subsequently reported that at the beginning of the pre-service teacher education program, pre-service teachers tended to be more or less humanistic in their PCI.
