The Provincial School Superintendent in Thailand: A Study of Role Perceptions and Expectations.
The purpose of this study was to identify consensus or conflict in the perceptions of the role of provincial school superintendent in Thailand held by (1) provincial school superintendents, (2) provincial governors, and (3) senior administrators of the Ministry of Education. Administrator respondents were asked in a questionnaire to indicate the strength of their agreement with 50 items of expected administrator behavior. Analysis of variance indicated consensus between provincial superintendents and senior administrators, but statistically significant conflict in the role expectations of provincial governors when compared with both populations of provincial superintendents and senior administrators. Consensus within populations was high, with statistically significant conflicts in six items for superintendents, eight items for governors, and nine items for senior administrators. (RA)
