A Comparison of Elementary School Principals to Junior/Middle and Senior High Principals on Perceived Job Related Tension, Participation in Decision Making, Job Involvement and Job Satisfaction.
Poppenhagen, Brent W.
This study was undertaken to establish whether and how elementary school principals differ from junior high or middle school principals and senior high principals in their perceptions of their jobs. The results indicate that, with the exception of one variable, no significant difference exists among these groups in their perceptions of job-related tension, of participation in and influence on decision making, of job involvement, and of job satisfaction. The one variable on which elementary principals differed from their secondary counterparts related to amount of job interference with family life; secondary principals tended to perceive more interference than did elementary principals. For the most part, all groups indicated general satisfication with their jobs. The author surveyed by questionnaire 234 elementary principals, 76 junior/middle school principals, and 91 senior high principals in Minnesota. (Author/DS)
