Playing the Role of the Principal: Patterns of Administrative Response.
Gaynor, Alan K.
First-order analyses of the data obtained from 90 workshop participants, each of whom played the role of the principal of Janus Junior High School (a racially mixed inner city school) have identified 16 factors of actions, values, and means of communication. Second-order analyses have identified three types of administrative style: (1) personal-transactional, (2) authoritarian, and (3) participative. Further research is planned to test the stability of these findings, hopefully with larger, more representative samples in both simulated and real-world environments. (Author)
