Consensus Decision Making.
Whitaker, Suzanne; Fowler, Kathleen
Consensus decisionmaking is a tool which utilizes the talents and knowledge of school personnel and recognizes the dignity and worth of each individual member of the staff. This process recognizes the abilities and dedication of the teachers and focuses on the organization as a whole, rather than individual facets of the organization. Because of their increased participation in the decisionmaking process, teachers develop a sense of pride and ownership about the policies in their schools. In this discussion of consensus decisionmaking in the schools, the principal is seen as the most effective individual for developing the structure in which participative decisionmaking can occur, and for providing the climate in which it can flourish.
