Teacher-Centered Management Style of Public School Principals and Job Satisfaction of Teachers.
Chung, Ki-Suck
A concept of teacher-centered management was proposed as a style of leadership behavior for school administrators to reduce the incompatibility between social/psychological needs of teachers and monocratic/bureaucratic management patterns in educational organizations. Data obtained from self-report questionnaires distributed to teachers in 21 public schools in southeastern Michigan demonstrated that a high teacher-centered management style of leadership behavior by public school principals--as perceived by teachers--and high job satisfaction of teachers are significantly related. Teacher-centered administrative management style is characterized by teachers as (1) much sharing in decision making, (2) less close teacher supervision, (3) high administrative support of teachers' professional growth, (4) strong personal relationships, and (5) accessible relationships. The concept is supported as a useful approach to improving interpersonal relationships in educational organizations. (Author)
