Organizational and Interpersonal Dimensions of the Elementary School.
Pettibone, Timothy J.
To meet the educational goals of his school, a principal would benefit from a knowledge of the informal interpersonal relationships present in his school. Through sociograms and the Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire (OCDQ), five hypotheses of informal organization relationships were tested. Four hypotheses were supported by sociometric and statistical analysis: (1) teacher interactions surpass teacher attributes in explanation of variance, (2) teachers can be classified as influentials or noninfluentials from measures of their behavior and attributes, (3) isolated teachers perceive teacher behavior differently than nonisolated teachers, and (4) the principal's socially of control consists of eight or fewer subordinates. The hypothesis, that socially active teachers perceive principal behavior differently than nonsocially active teachers, remained unsupported. (RA)
