Abstract: The classroom organization plan recently implemented in Hawaii's schools and referred to as the "3 on 2 Program" has as its major objectives close collaborative teacher effort and instruction geared to the individual needs of children. Both goals represent an attempt to capitalize on the role of effective interpersonal relationships as a salient condition necessary for successful learning experiences. This study was conducted to compare teachers participating in the 3 on 2 program and teachers of self-contained classrooms with respect to their attitudes toward pupils and fellow teachers, the groups with which a teacher has most frequent and significant contacts in the school. An attitude was defined, for the purpose of this study, as an idea or group of ideas acting as a determining set or tendency which predisposes an individual toward approaching or positively toned action, or toward withdrawing or negatively toned action. Operationally, an attitude was defined as an expressed opinion. The investigator postulated that positive attitudes toward pupils and teachers contribute to effective interpersonal relationships and consequently, to effective teaching and learning. Successful teacher pupil and teacher-teacher relations must be considered as a main criterion in the evaluation of any education program.
