Williams, Fabre K.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Tennessee State University
This research explores the relationship of principal leadership practices and teacher morale. Six schools in a West Tennessee school system participated in the study. The participants in the study were executive principals and classroom teachers. The study was a descriptive, causal-comparative research design chosen to examine the possible relationships between principals' leadership practices and teacher morale as measured by the Leadership Practices Inventory and the Purdue Teacher Opinionaire. The design examines principals' gender and age as possible contributing factors to any impact or any existing relationships in the environments. The results of the study revealed that there was no correlation between morale and leadership. There was a weak, negative relationship between morale and principal age. There was a weak, positive relationship between morale and principal gender. Due to the small sample size of the study no generalizations could be made regarding the categories and perceptions of leadership.
