THE INFLUENCE OF WORK VALUES ON TEACHER SELECTION DECISIONS: THE EFFECTS OF PRINCIPAL VALUES, TEACHER VALUES, AND PRINCIPAL–TEACHER VALUE INTERACTIONS
TATE Volume 14, Number 4 ISSN 0742-051X Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of work values on teacher selection decisions. The comparative emphasis scale served to measure the dominant work values of school principals (N=115). A between-within factorial design and stepwise multiple regression were used to regress principal rating of a teacher candidate (dependent variable) on principal and teacher dominant work values and on principal–teacher work value interactions. A linear combination composed of four work value interactions and the teacher work value achievement accounted for a significant amount of variance in principal ratings of teachers. These results suggest that principal work values influence teacher selection decisions.
