1. Naumann, Luisa Maria. Collective efficacy as identified by teachers at Heritage Middle School, East Central Independent School District, San Antonio, Texas.

Degree: 2008, Texas A&M University

The primary purpose of this study was to investigate the collective efficacy of teachers at Heritage Middle School in the East Central Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas, and to determine the relationship between selected demographic variables and the teachers' collective efficacy. The variables included teachers' ethnicity, gender, years of teaching at Heritage Middle School in the East Central Independent School District, total years of teaching, and highest degree earned. The researcher used the collective efficacy survey short form instrument developed by Roger D. Goddard to assess the campus's collective efficacy survey. Answers to the following questions were sought in this study. The first question studied was, "What is the perceived collective efficacy as reported by teachers at Heritage Middle School, East Central Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas?" The results of the study indicated that the teachers who participated in the study all mildly agreed that they had the ability to make all the students at Heritage Middle School successful. The second question studied was, "What is the relationship between selected demographic variables and the perceptions of the teachers regarding collective efficacy at Heritage Middle School, East Central Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas?" The results indicated that there were no statistically significant differences between the variables of gender, ethnicity, length of time in the classroom, length of time in the district, and length of time in the profession and the teachers' collective efficacy. During the 10 years that the Heritage Middle School has been in operation, there have been six different principals resulting in six different approaches to the management of the school. No research was found that explains how a school's collective efficacy is affected when there are numerous administrative changes. Further research that examines the relationship between stability of leadership and collective efficacy of teachers is needed. Advisors/Committee Members: Collier, Virginia (advisor), Webb-Johnson, Gwen (advisor), Hoyle, John (committee member), Larke, Alvin (committee member).

2. Rodriguez, Claudia G. A case study of the perceptions of current and former school board members of a recently annexed, rural, impoverished, South Texas, Latino school district in a high stakes accountability system.

Degree: 2009, Texas A&M University

This research study was a qualitative study involving eight current or former school board members of a recently annexed, rural, impoverished, Latino school district in South Texas. The purpose of this intrinsic case study was to highlight the plight of rural education, specifically the plight of a poor school district by examining the perceptions of the school board members. This study was organized around the following sensitizing concerns (Blumer, 1969; Patton, 2002; Schwandt, 2001): What were the school board members? perceptions about the school district prior to the annexation? What were the school board members? perceptions of the factors that contributed to the annexation? What were the school board members? perceptions of the effect of the annexation on the community? The method of inquiry was conversational information interviews (Patton, 2002), two unstructured interviews with each school board member, going where the interviews took me (Fontana & Frey, 2005). The themes revealed in the research included (1) power dynamics, with three sub-themes, (a) trusting those in power, (b) deferring to those in power, and (c) becoming those in power; (2) denial of the obvious, and (3) unspoken paternalism?the Anglo patron system. This study offers implications for policy, practice, and additional research in the areas of rural communities and rural school districts, but most importantly, it provides evidence that rural colonias located along the U.S.-Mexico border have unique educational needs. Rural school districts located along this border need strong school leaders with ?a critical leadership of place that support community as a context for learning, understand that schools and their local communities are inextricably linked and that the ability of each to thrive is dependent upon the other? (Budge, 2006, p.8). Advisors/Committee Members: McKenzie, Kathryn B. (advisor), Collier, Virginia (committee member), Torres, Mario (committee member), Webb-Johnson, Gwen (committee member).
