Summary

Efforts were made to discover the relationships between superintendents, principals, and teachers. Major areas of investigation concerned the role of the principal and his fulfillment of that role. The study was to provide a basis for further research in these areas. The role of the principal concerned the tasks of selection of curriculum, administration of instruction, development of personnel, maintenance of good school-community relations, and maintenance of funds and materials. Traditional values (puritan moral values, individualism, work success, and future time orientation) were preferred. Many times confusion resulted from misunderstanding of the superintendent-principal relationship and the principal-teacher relationship. Teacher training should place emphasis on behavior aspects of administrative leadership. Preservice training and personal interaction are very important to administartion education. Further research is needed in such administrative behavior areas as social values in administrative behavior, teacher morale, and administration leadership. Replications of this study are needed.
