International Journal of Leadership in Education, v12 n1 p73-84 Jan 2009
The purpose of the study was to investigate whether Exemplary, Recognized and Acceptable schools differ in their school climates, as measured by the 10 dimensions of the Organizational Health Inventory. Significant differences were found on all 10 dimensions of the Organizational Health Inventory, with Exemplary schools out-performing Acceptable schools. No statistical significance was found between Exemplary and Recognized schools. Statistical significance was found, with Recognized schools out-performing Acceptable schools on the Organizational Health dimensions of Goal focus and Adaptation. The findings of this study suggest that students achieve higher scores on standardized tests in schools with healthy learning environments. (Contains 1 table.)
