Teacher Self-Efficacy and Site-Based Management as a Decentralization Strategy.
Newkirk, Catherine Elaine Parker; Klotz, Jack
This paper reports on a study to determine if teacher self-efficacy in site-based managed schools differed from teacher self-efficacy in schools that were not site-based managed. The study also examined whether there was a relationship between self-efficacy in site-based managed schools and schools that were not site-based managed in regards to age, gender, years of teaching experience, years at present school, grade-level assignment, and education degree of teachers. Participants in the study were about 100 teachers from two secondary site-based managed schools and about 100 teachers from two secondary schools that were not site-based managed in South Mississippi. Data were collected from a researcher-designed instrument (included in the report). Analysis of the data showed that teachers in site-based managed schools had a higher level of teacher self-efficacy than teachers in the other schools. Analysis also showed that there was a significant difference in self-efficacy among teachers in site-based managed schools and teachers in the other schools relative to their influence on the variables of curriculum, school resources, and disciplinary procedures. There was not a significant difference in self-efficacy among teachers relative to their influence on the variable of instruction. (Contains 46 references.) (WFA)
