School District Leadership Stability: The Relationship between the Stability of a Board of Education and the Superintendent
Williams, Paul; Tabernik, Anna Maria
International Journal of Educational Reform, v20 n1 p16-32 Win 2011
Board of education membership changes that are numerous or frequent appear to cause some level of disruption to the educational process in a school district. A board of education that is changing can be vulnerable to special interest groups. The purpose of this study is to determine the interrelationships among the following five variables and board of education membership stability: (1) changes in student scores on the Ohio tests of achievement, (2) changes in the district's operational millage rates, (3) changes in the number of staff conflicts and anxiety, (4) changes in the percentage of enrolled minority students, and (5) changes in overall student enrollment.
