Abstract:Simon (1976) insists "a general theory of administration must include principles of organization that will ensure correct decision-making, just as it must include principles that will ensure effective action" (p. 1). Similarly, Griffiths (1959) writes "the specific function of administration is to develop and regulate the decision-making process in the most effective manner possible" (p. 73). Thus, decision theory and administrative theory share a long history in classical management literature. The purpose of this study was to identify what secondary principles relied on when making student related decisions. Furthermore, this study examined the influence of values in the decision-making process of secondary school principal as it relates to the student arena. Various value frameworks (Ashbaugh & Kasten, 1984; Lakomski, 1987; Campbell-Evans, 1991; Beck, 1984a; Begley P. T., 1988; Hodgkinson, 1978) were examined that have proven influential in the study of principal decision-making. Some of the elements of the proposed value based decision-making framework developed from the literature was consistent with some of the findings, but diverged from the classical model of decision-making. The results of this study found that secondary principal relied most heavily on policy and procedure when making student arena related decisions. Furthermore, the results found that values emerged a component in the decision-making process of secondary principals; however, the extent to which they are influential remains unclear.
