Converting Authority to Leadership: The Principal's Rule Administration.
Snead, Bertram H.; Lutz, Frank W.
The purpose of the study was to examine the conditions effecting teacher-principal joint operationalization of rules as these related to perceived mutual needs. Using the field study methodology of participant observation, the researcher observed and recorded the daily interactions between teachers and the principal in an urban elementary school setting. A model of the process of mutual rule conversion is developed describing conditions necessary for modifying the intent of rules. Willingness or unwillingness coincided with participants' belief systems, the morality of the specific issue, mutual concern and respect for individuals, or acceptance of one of a set of undesirable alternatives.
