A Study of the Relationship Between Administrative Behavior of Principals and Goal Accomplishment of Schools.
Dauterive, Barbara Lynn
The objective of this dissertation proposal was to propose a study to determine the relationship between administrative skill and goal accomplishment. The paper begins with a review of the literature and a discussion of the Halpin model to promote the development of a theory of administration. Next, the proposed study is explained. According to the paper, the Ledbetter rating scale will be administered to all principals in the Orleans Parish Public School System and a questionnaire on organizational climate will be administered to participating teachers. In addition, data pertaining to student achievement scores and suspension records will be collected from the schools. Specifically, the proposed study will investigate the use of human, technical, and conceptual skills by administrators in their job performance, measure the effectiveness of the school via its goals, and determine the relationship between the administrator's use of skills and the effectiveness of the school.
