The communication of the principal and how it impacts the Yeshiva middle school climate
MetadataShow full item record
This non-experimental survey study used hierarchical regression to examine the relationship between 81 teachers' perceptions of principal communication and 226 students' perceptions of school climate in four Yeshiva middle schools located in the New York metropolitan area. Hypotheses were that Dean/Head of School communication and principal communication are important and would uniquely predict school climate, even when controlling for principal of school communication, type of school, teacher grade level taught, gender and role, and communication of Jewish vision. These hypotheses were partially supported. Although the communication of the leader of the entire institution was not found to impact school climate, principal communication was found to have a positive and significant relationship with school climate.
