Alaka'i Haumana: A Grounded Theory Study to Create a Student Leadership Development Model for a Hawaiian Secondary Private Christian School
Graham, Derrik
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Liberty University
The purpose of this qualitative grounded theory study was to create a student leadership development model specific to secondary students in a private Christian Hawaiian school system. The paradigm that guided this study was Kouzes and Posner's (2012) transformational leadership theory as it provides a framework of leaders equipping, encouraging, assisting, and serving others in order to empower them to lead others in the same way. The primary research question was, what are the elements necessary for a student leadership development model in a private Christian Hawaiian school system? Participants for this study were purposefully selected to represent individuals who could inform the development of the model, including Kamehameha administration, Hawaiian cultural and leadership experts, as well as alumni. Data were collected through semi-structured, open-ended interviews and analysis of documents pertaining to the Hawaiian culture as well as the Kamehameha School system. Data analysis followed systematic grounded theory coding procedures and consist of asking questions, reflective and theoretical memoing, coding, constant comparisons, in vivo coding, theoretical comparisons, and theoretical sampling (Corbin & Strauss, 2015, p. 85).
