This study examines the influence of teacher dogmatism and organizational climate on pupil control ideology. Three instruments were administered to teachers and principals (n = 978) in fifty-three elementary schools. Using a 2-way analysis of variance procedure, comparisons between the pupil control ideology of low, middle, and high dogmatic teachers in open and closed climate schools revealed statistically significant differences between levels of dogmatism and pupil control ideology. In addition, teachers in open schools were more humanistic in pupil control ideology than teachers in closed schools. However, for those teachers who scored at the extreme ends of Dogmatism Scale, school climate had no effect on their pupil control ideology.
