The Influence of School Leadership on Teachers' Perception of Teacher Evaluation Policy
Tuytens, Melissa; Devos, Geert
Educational Studies, v36 n5 p521-536 Dec 2010
The understanding of teachers' perception of new educational policy is crucial since this perception shapes the policy's implementation. However, quantitative research in this area is scarce. This article draws on empirical data to investigate whether the school leader might influence his teachers' perception of the new teacher evaluation policy. The conceptualisation of teachers' perception consists of three policy characteristics: practicality, need and clarifying function. Our results indicate that school leadership influences teachers' policy perception. More specifically, the structure a school leader provides in a school and the amount of trust teachers have in the school leader have a significant impact on teachers' perception of the practicality of the new teacher evaluation policy.
