Abstract: The purpose of the study was to look critically at the creation of inservice education settings for the teacher in the school society. The premise for the study was based on Seymour Sarason's thesis: "In the case of the problem of the creation of settings (and why so many of them misfire) we do not possess adequate case histories, less because of faulty conceptions than because it has hardly been conceptualized as a problem" (Sarason, 1976, p. 165). Inservice education leaders of three public school systems in Piedmont North Carolina were interviewed. Reports, survey data, standard forms, program offerings, and other mimeographed materials were studied in order to obtain a mental profile of the inservice programs.
