Enabling School Structures: Principal Leadership and Organizational Commitment of Teachers
Sinden, James; Hoy, Wayne K.; Sweetland, Scott R.
Journal of School Leadership, v14 n2 p195-210 Mar 2004
School structures need not be rigid, controlling, and coercive; in fact, they can be just the opposite. Enabling school structures are centralized and formalized in ways that promote problem solving, collaboration, flexibility, change, and professional judgment. The current research demonstrates the importance of "both" collegial leadership of the principal and organizational commitment of the faculty in the development of enabling school structures. Building an enabling structure is likely a key to promoting quality school organizations. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
