ADMINISTRATIVE CONTROLS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND EFFECTIVE WORKING RELATIONSHIPS.
OTTO, HENRY J.; VELDMAN, DONALD J.
THE CONTROL STRUCTURE IN PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEMS WAS RELATED TO THE DIMENSIONS OF ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATE BY INVESTIGATING THE RELATIONSHIPS OF ELEMENTARY PRINCIPALS' AND TEACHERS' SCORES ON TWO MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENTS. THE HALPIN-CROFT ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATE DESCRIPTION QUESTIONNAIRE AND THE MCLEOD CONTROL STRUCTURE DESCRIPTION QUESTIONNAIRE WERE ADMINISTERED TO 38 PRINCIPALS AND 684 TEACHERS. THE LATTER TEST CONTAINED 80 PROBLEM SITUATIONS DISTRIBUTED EQUALLY INTO THE FOUR FUNCTIONAL AREAS OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM, DEVELOPING PERSONNEL, MANAGING THE SCHOOL, AND COMMUNITY RELATIONS. IT WAS FOUND THAT THERE WERE SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN AND AMONG THE PRINCIPALS' ALLOCATIONS OF SCORES ON BOTH TESTS AND THE TEACHERS' ALLOCATIONS OF SCORES ON BOTH TESTS. THE GENERAL CONCLUSION, HOWEVER, WAS THAT PRINCIPALS AND TEACHERS DO NOT USE A COMMON FRAME OR REFERENCE FOR VIEWING THEIR RELATIONSHIPS TO EACH OTHER, AND THEY SEE DECISION MAKING AND SCHOOL CLIMATE FROM DISSIMILAR VANTAGE POINTS.
