Relationship between the Leadership Style of a Junior High School Principal and the School Climate.
Sistrunk, Walter E.
This paper examines the relationships among school climate, leadership styles, and group interaction as perceived by teachers, selected parents, and selected students in a medium-sized Mississippi Delta school district. Parent dissatisfaction with the behavior of a junior high school principal provoked this study. The total sample consisted of 86 respondents. Findings indicate that students were more satisfied with the school climate than were parents, and both students and parents were much more satisfied with it than were teachers. Teachers were very dissatisfied with the school climate as well as the principal's leader behavior. Seven data tables are appended. (SI)
