Abstract

The concept of climate is a recurring theme of the three sectionsof this article. The inadequacy of climate as a metaphor is addressed inthe first section. Teachers do, however, use the termclimate in an explanatory and predictive way. Whenevaluators and researchers work with teachers they have a particularresponsibility both in provision of data and in the use of conceptswhich frame the data. These and related issues form the second section.The third and major section portrays a model of culture whichacknowledges overt and covert meanings as well as the interaction of thedifferent levels of the model, namely beliefs, values, norms andstandards, and finally behaviour. The discussion develops a linkage fromthe culture of the organisation to wider societal influences. Schoolclimate is placed as the most superficial level of the interactive modelof school culture.
