Effects of Emotional Intelligence on Teacher Retention
Gerald, Grant Ronald
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Southeastern Louisiana University
This mixed methods, explanatory design study focused on determining if the emotional intelligence of principals affects the retention of new teachers. In phase one, a non-random cluster sample of 138 public school principals in the state of Louisiana was surveyed using a quantitative instrument. A Factor Analysis, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), and Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA) were conducted and results were analyzed. A second phase of inquiry consisted of follow-up interviews of ten principals from the survey sample to gain further insight into their use of emotional intelligence to affect teacher retention. Results indicate that there is not a statistically significant relationship between emotional intelligence and teacher retention.
