Organizational Climate and Frequency of Principal-Teacher Communications in Selected Ohio Elementary Schools.
Helwig, Carl
Organizational conflict theory asserts that when organizational homeostasis becomes unbalanced, the participants in the conflict should communicate more. To test this assertion, the average total frequency of principal-teacher oral and written communications over an identical 20-day period were correlated with two empirically-determined variables--school organizational climate (explaining the nature of homeostasis) and teacher esprit (the degree of teacher satisfaction or morale). Thirty-seven cooperating Ohio elementary schools and their respective faculties formed the sample. The basic assumption was not upheld and further refined statistical analyses of the data also failed to lend it additional support. (Author)
