Educating students requires a partnership between teacher and student. Affecting that partnership are many decisions. Unfortunately for teachers and students, most of those decisions are made by other people. These decisions relate to curriculum, scheduling, resources, and most everything else concerned with education. In an effort to include teachers and students in the decision making process, participative leadership is explored as an opportunity to do so. This form of leadership begins at the district level and carries through into decisions made at the school level. Research will understand participative leadership through a mixed methods approach that analyzes the district and high school, North Carolina Teacher Working Conditions survey results, and interviews with leadership, teachers, and students.
