A Review of Educational Role Theory: A Teaching Guide for Administrative Theory.
Clouse, R. Wilburn
This document examines role theory limited to the major studies related to educational administrators. The nature and history of role theory are reviewed and three theoretical approaches to the study of role theory are described: (1) role conflict resolution theory; (2) role theory related to social systems theory; and (3) the Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation Theory of interpersonal behavior. Three empirical role theory studies related to educational administration are the School Board Executive Studies Program, the National Principalship Study, and the Role Conflict Resolution Behavior Study of High School Principals. Finally, conclusions are drawn about the methods used in role theory studies. (37 references) (SI)
