Principals' Communication inside Schools: A Contribution to School Improvement?
Arlestig, Helene
Educational Forum, The, v71 n3 p262-273 Spr 2007
This paper reports on an empirical study of how structure, culture, and message content affected communications between principals and teachers in one Swedish school. The study revealed that communication within this school merely transmitted the information necessary for conducting daily work, which resulted in predictable behaviors, rather than stimulating learning and encouraging challenging dialogue about significant pedagogical and school improvement issues.
