EDR8203 Servant Leadership in Education Problem Research Proposal


Research Method Selection Selected Research Problem The impact of servant leadership on school climate and school culture. ➢ There is currently a lack of research on servant leadership and education, having approximately 270 articles published over a span of 20 years. The first peer-reviewed servant leadership scale was published in 1998. (Eva, Robin, Sendjaya, Van Dierendonck, and Liden, 2019) Choice of Research Method Qualitative research methods is the justifiable method for researching Servant leadership and it’s effects on school culture and climate. The intended research will consist of the following qualitative data collection :  Obtaining the student’s perspectives ❖  Identifying the factors impacting the school’s culture and climate ❖  Qualitative research attempts to develop a holistic picture of the area of study, which involves identifying the many factors of the situation (Creswell, 2015) Obtaining the school administrators and educators perspectives ❖  Qualitative data provides information about the setting or context of an environment, while quantitative data provides generalizability. (Creswell, 2005) If the purpose is to understand how educators perceive a particular issue, then qualitative methods are appropriate (McCusker & Gunaydin, 2015) Identifying servant leadership behaviors ❖ Qualitative research attempts to develop a holistic picture of the area of study, which involves identifying the many factors of the situation (Creswell, 2015) Types of Qualitative Research Design  Phenomenological Method ❖  Ethnographic Model ❖  Provides an in-depth look at one test subject Historical Model ❖  Tries to explain why a course of action evolved the way it did; large subject numbers Case Study Model ❖  Immerses subjects in a culture that is unfamiliar to them Grounded Theory Method ❖  Describes how any one participant experiences a specific event Describes past events in order to understand present patterns and anticipate future choices Narrative Model ❖ Occurs over extended periods of time and compiles information as it happens. Grounded Theory Method  Process involves many individuals  Questions about our (the educators/students/administrators) experiences over time  Experiences and perceptions of educators, students, and administrators  Uses interviews  Gives a better understanding of how a community (school system) performs Phenomenological Method  Describes any one participants experiences  Uses interviews and surveys to collect data  concerned with how participants feel about things during an event or References Black, G.

Your research proposal should contain the following sections.

  • Introduction to the problem.
  • Statement of the problem.
  • Purpose of the research.
  • Research question(s) to address the purpose of the research.
  • Related hypotheses, null and alternative (quantitative method choice only).
  • Research method and corresponding design with rationale for method and design choice.
  • Description of the sample participants and data collection and analysis strategies.
  • Ethical considerations for the proper treatment of the sample participants.

Support your assignment with at least seven scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
