Supervisory Communications and Support Linkages between High School Principals and Teachers.
Martin, Robert A.
This study was undertaken to determine the extent of the perceived communication and support linkages between high school principals and vocational agriculture teachers in the state of Indiana. A survey questionnaire using a Likert-type scale was mailed to all vocational agricultural teachers and their respective high school administrators in the state. Statistically significant differences were found in the perceptions of principals and vocational agriculture teachers regarding the following items: free exchange of information, student feedback, confidence in each other, assistance with professional problems, team work, and accountability of time and resources. A large number of teachers in this study had limited formal contact time with school administrators for supervision or observation of instruction. Results suggest that communication linkages are not well established between vocational agriculture teachers and school principals in Indiana. References are included, along with illustrative charts and tables.(Author/TE)
