Administrator Behavior in Crisis Management.
George, Richard L.
This study was intended to assess the response of educational administrators to crises by measuring the degree that school superintendents vary their responses according to the characteristics of a crisis. A questionnaire was developed, pilot-tested, and revised, then sent to all 39 school superintendents in Rhode Island. The resulting data were analyzed and Pearson product-moment correlations were calculated for each set of responses. The analysis was intended to test the major hypothesis that there are significant relationships between the characteristics of a crisis and administrators' responses. Seven subhypotheses were investigated to test the validity of the major hypothesis. Since six of the seven subhypotheses were supported by the data at the .05 level or better, the author concludes that the major hypothesis was supported by the investigation. (JG)
