Structural and Organizational Interaction of Educational and Community Leaders in a Small Community. Final Report.
This study explores the hypotheses that as a consequence of an increase in extra-educational functions assumed by school districts, the interaction between educational and community leadership groups would increase and that community leaders would be more supportive of educational innovations. Researchers attempted to discover if community leaders would participate in educational decisions, if educational leaders would be identifiable in the community, and if members of the two leadership structures would interact in organizational settings. Results of the study revealed infrequent interaction between educational and community leaders in any setting, and, where there was interaction, no significant increase in community leader support for educational innovations.
