In the last several years, my research (Rideout, 2006; Rideout & Morton, 2007; Rideout & Koot, 2009; Rideout & Morton, 2010) has examined the relationship between beliefs/orientations and ideologies sustaining custodial and humanistic learning environments, as identified in the Pupil Control Ideology (PCI) literature. This research was focused on the pre-service teacher preparation stage. More recently, an empirical examination was conducted of changes toward more humanistic or more custodial PCI that might occur during beginning teachers’ early years in the classroom (Rideout & Windle, 2010). Shifts in PCI were examined in relation to the ‘internal’ factor of teachers’ beliefs about education, and ‘external’ factors such as mentorship, induction programs, and school leadership style. Beginning teachers were identified as more reflective, more authentic (aligning actions with beliefs), and less imitative in their classroom practices than during their pre-service program, when they were perceived as being more custodial and more imitative. Most recently, findings of the Rideout and Windle study have been tested and expanded in a national SSHRC-funded study. Preliminary findings of this study were presented at the University of New Brunswick (CSSE) in May, 2011. They were published as Researcher-identified and emergent predictors of pupil control ideologies: A Canadian beginning teacher perspective(Rideout & Windle, 2013).
Closely associated with this line of inquiry pertaining to a humanistic approach to education are a series of Restorative Justice studies that have been conducted in collaboration with the Greater Essex County District School Board, along with my colleagues Roland, Salinitri, and Frey. These studies have identified and quantified specific outcomes of a pilot implementation of restorative justice practices in seven of the Board’s schools (Rideout, Roland, Salinitri, & Frey, 2011), and led to the development of a Restorative Justice Ideology (RJI) measurement instrument during 2010/2011. This instrument which was published as Development and use of a restorative justice ideology instrument: Assessing beliefs (Roland, Rideout, Salinitri, and Frey, 2012) will be used to assist in the planning and assessment of sustainable restorative justice training initiatives.
Most recently, my research interests as it pertains to Pupil Control Ideologies and Restorative Justice have taken on an international flavor as I have visited schools and universities in Beijing, Chongqing, and Dongying (Shandong Province), China. Data is currently being collected as a means of comparing Chinese and Canadian PCI, and a Tsinghua University (Beijing) conference presentation (Sefton, Rideout & Bayley, 2014) will be submitted as a journal manuscript shortly.
