Relationships Between Innovation and Selected School Factors.
Pafford, William N.
This paper presents the results of a study to determine the relationships between educational innovation and certain school factors -- quality ranking, mean age of principals, length of superintendent tenure, amount of local revenue devoted to education, and district enrichment expenditure. Regression equations and explanations of report study findings were utilized in arriving at the conclusion that the best predictor of innovation -- among the variables tested in the study -- is the amount of local revenue the school district allocates to education.
