Toward an Understanding of Teachers' Desire for Participation in Decision Making.
Taylor, Dianne L.; Tashakkori, Abbas
Journal of School Leadership, v7 n6 p609-28 1997
Explores the assumption that teachers want to participate in schoolwide decision making by constructing a typology of teachers. Characterizes four types of teachers: empowered, disenfranchised, involved (those that do not want to participate, but do), and disengaged. Analysis of teachers' differences and similarities on demographic and attitudinal indicators shows that teachers are distinguished more by actual participation than the desire to participate.
