STAFF CONFLICTS IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
CORWIN, RONALD G.
SEVERAL CRITICAL COMPONENTS OF PUBLIC SCHOOL ORGANIZATION AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO STAFF CONFLICT WERE STUDIED. A SAMPLE OF 1,976 FACULTY MEMBERS IN 28 PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS WAS SELECTED FOR QUESTIONING AND INTERVIEWING. THE FINDINGS DISCUSSED WERE (1) TYPICAL PATTERNS OF ORGANIZATION, (2) ASSOCIATIONS BETWEEN ORGANIZATIONAL VARIABLES AND CONFLICT, (3) DEPARTMENTAL ANALYSES, (4) CONTENT ANALYSES, AND (5) ANALYSES OF INDIVIDUALS. STAFF CONFLICT APPEARED TO BE DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE PROFESSIONAL ORIENTATION OF SCHOOL BUREAUCRACIES. CONFLICT APPEARED TO INCREASE IN THE BUREAUCRATIZATION OF MORE PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS. BUREAUCRATIZATION, HOWEVER, WAS FOUND TO BE A DIRECT RESPONSE TO SUCH OTHER CONDITIONS AS PROFESSIONALISM, ORGANIZATIONAL COMPLEXITY, AND STAFF TURNOVER WHICH, IN TURN, WERE DIRECTLY ASSOCIATED WITH CONFLICT. A SIGNIFICANT CONCLUSION WAS, THEREFORE, THAT CONFLICT NOT ONLY REPRESENTS THE BREAKDOWN OF SCHOOL ORGANIZATIONS, BUT THE CAUSE OF THE ORGANIZATIONAL TYPES OBSERVED. (RS)
