By Abir Soubra


Includes bibliographical references (leaves 23-25).Teachers' empowerment is the basis for most educational reform. This case study was designed to examine whether or not teachers are empowered in a selected private school and whether empowerment affects teachers' satisfaction. Participants were 25 teachers and the principal of the school. The instruments used were a questionnaire that included 19 questions, distributed to teachers and a semi-structured interview conducted with the principal. Results revealed that teachers are partially empowered in the school. They are involved in a limited extent in school's decisions school. They are also satisfied with their job. However, the major problem that hinders their full empowerment is financial and teachers are asking for increase in their wages.1 bound copy: vi, 37 leaves; col. ill.; 30 cm. available at RNL
