Middle School Climate: An Empirical Assessment of Organizational Health and Student Achievement.
Hoy, Wayne K.; Hannum, John W.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v33 n3 p290-311 Aug 1997
Although researchers and reformers consider school climate an important aspect of effective schools, the concept is difficult to measure. This paper uses a health metaphor to conceptualize and measure school climate. It examines relationships between school health and student achievement in a sample of New Jersey middle schools. Organizational health dimensions were significantly related to student achievement. (64 references) (MLH)
