Aiken, Debra L.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Phoenix
The study investigated the relationship between leadership behaviors of high school principals and teacher retention in Texas. A total of 88 Texas high school principals participated in the survey. Leadership behaviors were measured using the Culturally Adapted Leadership for Inspired Business Excellence and Results (CALIBER) Leadership Assessment scale (Lakhani, 2007). A correlation analysis for the relationship between leadership and teacher retention was performed. The statistical analysis showed a strong negative relationship between overall leadership behaviors and teacher retention. The results from the study indicate that measuring the leadership behaviors of principals can predict turnover percentage based on the 20 CALIBER scores plus four demographic variables.
