The thesis of this dissertation was: the morale of teachers will be high when they are involved in making decisions which they feel are important to them and when their involvement is to the extent to which they want to be involved in making decisions.

The population of this study consisted of 31,998 full-time and part-time teachers assigned to 1,252 Virginia public elementary schools during the 1975-1976 school year. The sample of this study was set at 600 full-time and part-time teachers assigned to 120 Virginia public elementary schools during the 1975-1976 school year.

Three instruments, the Personal and Situational Data Form, the Decision Locator Questionnaire, and the Purdue Teacher Opinionaire, were used for collecting data for this study. Useable instruments were completed by 381 teachers or 63.5 percent of those contacted and returned by contact persons of 77 schools or 64.1 percent of those contacted.
