Relationship of Values to Group Satisfaction.
Ingle, Earl B., Jr.; Munsterman, Richard E.
The objective of this study was to test several hypotheses concerning the relationship of principal-teacher value congruence to group satisfaction in elementary schools. Teachers and principals from rural and small-town public elementary schools in Illinois and Indiana were asked to respond to the VAL-ED instrument and one Heslin Group Satisfaction Inventory. Analysis of the data revealed that in high group satisfaction schools principal-teacher value divergence, rather than congruence, was prevalent. Also, teachers in high group satisfaction schools perceived their principals to be more democratic than did teachers in low group satisfaction schools. (Author)
