|Abstract: ||The purposes of this study were (1) to assess the organizational climate of senior
secondary schools in Southern Ethiopia and to determine if differences exist among the
schools in their level of openness and teachers' intimacy, and (2) to determine if some
variables such as staff size, principals and teachers personality characteristics (sex, age,
length of teaching and administrative experiences, level of education and field of
specialization) have relationships with senior secondary school openness and teachers'
The data were collected from documents and through questionnaire and inte~ew
with 393 teachers and 12 school principals. Various statistical techniques such as
Cronbach's alpha coefficient, chi- square, ANOVA and Scheffe' test were used to analyse
I The outcome of the data analysisrevealed significant differences among the senior
secondary schools in their level of openness and teachers' intimacy. The study also
indicated that most of the senior secondary schools had less open climate and low intimacy
On the whole, the results disclosed that staff size and some of principals'
personality characteristics (age, length of administrative experience and field of
specialization) had significant relationships with senior secondary school openness.
Moreover, the findings showed significant association between staff size, principals' field
of specialization and senior secondary school teachers' intimacy.
Finally, constant assessment and practices associated with fostering positive climate
to develop harmonious working relationship among the staff members, the formation and
utilization of a small group of staff advisory council in schools, maintenance of reduced
staff size, boosting the morale of principals and teachers, and further investigation as to
why principals with training in EDAD tend to develop less favorable school climate were
forwarded as major recommendations in order to improve the organizational climate of
the senior secondary schools.|
