A Study of Hierarchical Position and Need Satisfaction of Professional School Personnel.
Catherwood, Larry King
This study attempted to investigate the differences in need satisfaction of five levels of certified school personnel; i.e., superintendents, assistant superintendents, principals, supervisors, and teachers. The study also examined the differences in need satisfaction of school personnel categorized by age, sex, total years teaching experience, total years experience in present position, and school size. A random sample of 504 educators in Oklahoma including 240 administrators and 264 teachers was selected for the study, and the "School Personnel Satisfaction Inventory" was mailed to each subject. Equivalence of respondent and nonrespondent groups was tested for total need satisfaction, safety needs, belongingness and love needs, esteem needs, and self-actualization needs. Significant differences between these groups was determined for total need satisfaction, belongingness and love needs, and esteem needs. Study findings reveal that significant differences in total need satisfaction exist among groups of certified school personnel categorized by hierarchical position, age, sex, total years school experience, and years experience in present position; and that no significant differences in total need satisfaction exist among certified school personnel categorized by school size. An extensive bibliography is provided. (Author)
