Relationships between Measures of Leadership and School Climate
Kelley, Robert C.; Thornton, Bill; Daugherty, Richard
Education, v126 n1 p17 Fall 2005
Education leadership is possibly the most important single determinant of an effective learning environment. Change leaders must understand procedures and processes that create the conditions necessary for organizational improvement. Building principals must be able to assess and evaluate the impact and perceptions of their leadership styles. Effective school leadership substantially boosts student achievement. School climate, leadership, and quality instruction are frequently associated with effective schools. In this study, the authors investigated the relationships between selected dimensions of leadership and measures of school climate. In addition, principals' perceptions of their own leadership styles were compared with teachers' perceptions of their principals' leadership styles.
