Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Recent studies have shown that the school principal is the pivotal person in determining the effectiveness of a school. (24:1) He or she has more influence over both the institutional and the individual dimensions that comprise the operations of the school than any other single participant in the educational enterprise. Newell (31:5) has suggested that the reason administrator relationships have such far-reaching effects on education is because the goals the administrator sets out to achieve are realized chiefly through other people. It is inherent to an administrator's effectiveness to nurture positive human relationships.
