Elementary School Tvaas Composites: A Comparison Between Title I Elementary Schools And Non-Title I Elementary Schools In Tennessee, Anthony W. Padelski

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The goal of Title I is to provide extra instructional services and activities that support students identified as failing or most at risk of failing the state’s challenging performance standards in mathematics, reading, and writing. Low-income schools or Title I schools are the primary target of Title I funds. A school is eligible for Title I status when 40% of the school’s students are from low income families; these students are identified by their eligibility to receive free and reduced priced meals.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether there is a significant difference in elementary ...


Counselors And Principals: Collaborating To Improve Instructional Equity, Carl A. Lashley, Jaimie Stickl 2016 University of North Carolina Greensboro

Counselors And Principals: Collaborating To Improve Instructional Equity, Carl A. Lashley, Jaimie Stickl

Journal of Organizational & Educational Leadership

School districts are held accountable for the performance of all students. This increased responsibility has caused principals and their faculties to become increasingly concerned about using performance data to improve achievement, attendance, promotion and graduation rates, dropout rates and at-risk student performance, and other indicators of school quality. An often overlooked resource in the school’s efforts is the school counselor.

School counselors are well-prepared to assist principals with data utilization and making recommendations for individual student, classroom, and school-wide improvement. Collaborative relationships between principals and school counselors can contribute significantly to school improvement efforts and to professional learning and ...

Kirkman, Heather McNees, Jaimie Stickl, Justin H. Banner, Kimberly K. Hewitt 2016 University of North Carolina at Greensboro

Crossing The Suspension Bridge: Navigating The Road From School Suspension To College Success – How Some Students Have Overcome The Negative Implications Of School Suspension To Bridge The Road To College, Chris J. Kirkman, Heather Mcnees, Jaimie Stickl, Justin H. Banner, Kimberly K. Hewitt

Journal of Organizational & Educational Leadership

Out-of-school suspensions for middle and high school students can have negative, long-lasting consequences. Researchers have documented that suspensions have a negative impact on academic development, increase likelihood of dropping out of school, and are associated with a stronger likelihood that students will be involved in the legal system. However, there are students who overcome these negative statistics and matriculate to post-secondary education successfully. This study examines the lived experiences and personal attributes in students’ lives that enabled them to overcome a history of suspension to enter and succeed in higher education. Using Bronfenbrenner’s ecological model, the study’s researchers ...


The Influence Of Balance Within The Competing Values Framework And School Academic Success On Teacher Retention, Charisse Gulosino, Louis Franceschini III, Portia Hardman 2016 University of Memphis

The Influence Of Balance Within The Competing Values Framework And School Academic Success On Teacher Retention, Charisse Gulosino, Louis Franceschini Iii, Portia Hardman

Journal of Organizational & Educational Leadership

The primary aim of this study is to use the survey items from the TELL Tennessee Survey (2013) using the Competing Values Framework (CVF) to determine whether teachers' observations about a set of topically organized school climate dimensions and school performance levels are associated with their immediate professional plans. Using a three-by-two-level Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA), we find that the effect of CVF “balance” and school performance level explain much of the variation in the percent of teachers who intend to stay at their current school, independent of the school’s student demographic characteristics. Specifically, the effect of having a ...


Letter From The Editor, Steven Bingham 2016 Gardner-Webb University

Letter From The Editor, Steven Bingham

Journal of Organizational & Educational Leadership

Greetings from Gardner-Webb University to wherever in the world you may be reading this letter. The growth of readership over the last year has been nothing short of astounding. More than anything else, we think the outpour of attention speaks to the dearth of opportunity to learn from practitioners who, applying the principles of disciplined inquiry, are solving one local problem at a time.

Looking to the future, we hope soon to receive contributions from emerging practitioner scholars in Organizational Leadership, those in our program here at Gardner-Webb University and those in similar programs worldwide. Another goal is to issue ...

The 'Rules Of Engagement': The Ethical Dimension Of Doctoral Research, Christopher Berg 2016 State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota

The 'Rules Of Engagement': The Ethical Dimension Of Doctoral Research, Christopher Berg

Journal of Research Initiatives

The pursuit of a doctorate is a rite of passage that requires a student to successfully navigate the transition from “student” to “scholar.” One area of practice, however, that is often marginalized is the role of ethics. Though there is no formal coursework in ethics, its importance cannot be understated. This essay examines the conceptual role of ethics in doctoral research as both an individual reflective essay as well as a broader discussion of ethics in general. The ethical dimension considered is broken down into eight principles or ethical research and practice in doctoral research. The “Eight Ethical Principles” will ...

The Risks And Rewards Of Serving As A Department Chair, Jon A. Hess 2016 University of Dayton

The Risks And Rewards Of Serving As A Department Chair, Jon A. Hess

Jonathan A. Hess

Serving as chair is a significant point in the career of any faculty member who inhabits the office. It is a position with high highs and low lows, significant stressors and some perks, the chance to have a positive impact on a program, and the near certainty that at some point you will generate disagreement with almost everyone in the department. The department chair is a boundary position between the university administration and the faculty; a chair inhabits both worlds, but resides fully in neither. Chairs are charged with numerous responsibilities and often lack full authority needed to accomplish their ...

Colleges Of Education: Impact On Racial Equity, Jean Haar 2016 Minnesota State University - Mankato

Colleges Of Education: Impact On Racial Equity, Jean Haar

Contemporary Issues in Educational Leadership

By their very nature, Colleges of Education have a heightened level of responsibility and opportunity to impact racism as they not only prepare future educators but also support current educators. As dean of a College of Education, I have been involved in strategic planning, goal setting, and data analysis that on the surface reflects an effort to address cultural competency and the need for preparing a more diverse pool of educators; however, the AERA message jolted me into more closely examining whether or not the college is truly meeting its obligations and having an impact on the existing racial disparity ...


Teamwork: Crucible For Learning About Collaborative Leadership, Lisa DeAngelis, Sherry H. Penney, Maureen A. Scully 2016 University of Massachusetts Boston

Teamwork: Crucible For Learning About Collaborative Leadership, Lisa Deangelis, Sherry H. Penney, Maureen A. Scully

Sherry Penney

In teaching leadership development we have developed and revised a model of teamwork and collaboration, which has yielded innovative and positive results. Our study draws on insights from more than 90 project teams, gathered over twelve years of a mid-career executive education program designed specifically to teach collaborative leadership. The teams work on a strategic dilemma with a business association or community organization, highlighting the civic engagement aspect of collaborative leadership. Teams devise their own operating procedures, refine (not simply manage) the project, create working relationships with multiple stakeholders, and present a deliverable within the nine-month span of the program ...

The purpose of the Center’s Emerging Leaders Program is to challenge and inspire the adult participants in the program to act collaboratively, identify and rethink boundaries, build purposeful relationships, and become better leaders and citizens.

Change Agents In Global Initiatives, Suzanne K. Becking

Contemporary Issues in Educational Leadership

In December 2012, the President of Fort Hays State University attended a meeting with faculty and staff from the Department of Advanced Education Programs. During the meeting, he asked an important question,” What are you doing for Kansans?” The question became a challenge for a few faculty members that helped guide the direction of an initiative to provide professional development support for teachers on technology integration in the 21st Century classroom. The President’s question provided the impetus to keep going and to develop a more succinct plan to provide support for schools; especially as schools developed Google Domains and ...
