The Correlation between Teacher Empowerment and Principal Leadership Behaviors in High Schools
Kirgan, Benjamin G.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
This study will examine the correlation between teacher empowerment and transformational leadership in large high schools. A cross-correlational analysis will be conducted to test for significant relationships among the six dimensions of teacher empowerment (as described by Short & Rinehart, 1994), and the eight dimensions of transformational leadership (as described by Leithwood, Jantzi, & Steinbach, 1999). Overall comprehensive assessments of each topic will be measured and assessed for the degree of correlation. Some factors, such as teacher gender, age, tenure/non-tenure, subject taught, years of experience, education level, and special vs. regular education will also be explored and assessed for their relationship to each of the main variables in this study.
