Teachers' Perceptions of the Use of "Empowering-Type Activities" by Their Building Principals.
LoVette, Otis; Holland, Glenda; McCall, Mike
This study examined whether teachers perceived their school principals as using empowering-type activities. The study focused on differences according to such factors as age, gender, and school grade and size. Researchers examined the survey responses from graduate students in the Educational Leadership Program at Northeast Louisiana University in 1999. Participating students were full-time teachers taking evening courses at the university. Students completed a survey entitled Principal Profile, which asked them to rate their principals' performance and focused on empowering-type activities. Data analysis indicated that principals utilized empowering type activities to some degree. There were no significant differences between such groupings as older versus newer and male versus female administrators or teachers. The Principal Profile is appended. (SM)
