The Organizational Climate and Organizational Structure of Elementary Schools. A Study.
Ranyard, Redge W.
This report examines the relationship between the organizational climate (as measured by the Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire of Halpin and Croft--1966) and the organizational structure (in the context of the bureaucratic construct of Weber--1947) of elementary schools. The study postulated that the organizational structure of a school was a variable that would co-vary with a school's organizational climate. Interviews with school principals, and questionnaires distributed to 137 elementary schools in Washington State were used to collect data. Through statistical analysis, a number of significant but low-order single and multiple correlations were obtained. These correlations supported the general hypothesis, but represented explained variance of such low magnitude as to make either generalizations or detailed discussion of implications futile. (Author)
