Control and Satisfaction in Schools of Education: An Analysis of Faculty Perceptions.
Bullock, William, Jr.
This study investigates the relationship between variables of influence and faculty satisfaction in organizational settings as perceived by faculty members in five schools of education. It was hypothesized that influence characteristics of school of education deans would be significantly related to faculty satisfaction. One hundred sixty five faculty members of schools of education at five universities were polled. Dependent variables consisted of three dimensions of faculty satisfaction. Independent variables consisted of dean influence, total influence, and five dimensions of social power (legitimate, expert, referent, reward, and coercive). Mean and standard deviations for variables of dean influence, and mean ranking of the five dimensions of social power are given. Mean rankings for dimensions of social power characterizing faculty influence are indicated. Findings of the study are inconsistantly supportive of the hypothesis. (MJB)
