Magee, Iris Denise
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Southern Mississippi
In this paper, the research on the perceptions of gender differences in leadership styles is explored. The study also attempts to determine whether there are differences in overall school performance for male versus female school principals. The methodology involved a mixed-model ANOVA analysis of findings from 31 principals and 236 teachers across elementary, middle, and high school. This study revealed no significant differences in overall school performance or in the relationship between gender and leadership style for male versus female principals. The paper culminates in a series of recommendations for future research and policies and procedures. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
