A STRATIFIED RANDOM SAMPLE OF 240 HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS COMPLETED A SEMANTIC DIFFERENTIAL INSTRUMENT. MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE WAS THE MAJOR STATISTICAL PROCEDURE EMPLOYED IN THE STUDY. AMONG OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS, IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT LOW-STATUS PUPILS VALUE LEADERSHIP MORE HIGHLY THAN DO HIGH-STATUS PUPILS AND SHOULD BE AFFORDED AN OPPORTUNITY TO ASSUME POSITIONS OF LEADERSHIP.
