The Relationships Among Pupil Control Ideology, Observed Behavior and Discipline Referrals of Public Secondary School Teachers.
Ferguson, Jon S.; Miskel, Cecil G.
The rationale for the study of relationships between teacher-professed control ideology and their leader behavior, as observed by their pupils, was constructed from findings and conceptual assertions of Halpin, Winer, and Willower. Student discipline referral sheets were content-analyzed according to misbehavior categories. Significant ideological differences in leader behavior quartiles were not found. Significant differences, however, were found between ideology quartiles and for Initiating Structure between leader behavior and open, verbal misbehavior. The effective teacher-leader appears to achieve a delicate fusion of command and support. Comparable results to Halpin's study were obtained. (Three tables of data are included.) (Author)
