Administrative Leadership in a Sample of Successful Schools from the National Evaluation of the Emergency School Aid Act.
Marcus, Alfred C.; And Others
In conjunction with a national evaluation of the Emergency School Aid Act, an indepth analysis of 24 selected elementary schools was conducted. Data for the study were collected in 1974-75 through observation of classroom behavior, through interviews with school principals, and through self-administered questionnaires completed by the teachers and principal in each school. This report examines the relationship between administrative leadership and schools' success in raising achievement. Analysis of the survey data showed that schools in which principals emphasized the importance of selecting basic instructional materials and made more of the decisions in the instructional area were more likely to show achievement gains in the subject areas of reading and mathematics during 1974-75.
