Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Examining the relationship between assistant principals' pupil control ideologies and negative student behavior
by Robinson, Anthony R., Ed.D., University of Phoenix, 2008, 130; 3381829
Abstract (Summary)

Students suspended and expelled by assistant high school principals face increased chances of academic failure and increased possibilities of engaging in criminal activity and placement in the criminal justice system. This quantitative correlational study examined the correlation between assistant principals' pupil control ideology (PCI) scores and negative student behavior leading to out-of-school suspensions and expulsions at suburban high schools in St. Louis County, Missouri. Pearson's product-moment correlation coefficient and multiple regression procedures examined the correlation between assistant principals' PCI and suspensions, expulsions, and the frequency of negative student behavior. The study determined that school size and assistant principals' PCI effectively predicted the frequency of negative student behavior.
