The Relationship of Consultant Skill and School Organizational Characteristics With Teacher Use of School Based Consultation Services
Michael D. Bossard, Terry B. Gutkin
ABSTRACT: This exploratory study investigated the impact of consultant skill, school organizational climate, and principal leadership behavior on teachers’ use of school based consultation services. For the purposes of this study, 10 elementary schools were provided with consultants for two half days per week for a period of 14 weeks. A regression analysis (p < .10) indicated that 70% of the variance of the dependent variable was accounted for by the independent variables. The results are discussed in terms of their theoretical and practical implications.
