    The Influence of School Leadership on Teachers' Perception of Teacher Evaluation Policy.Melissa Tuytens & Geert Devos - 2010 - Educational Studies 36 (5):521-536.

    Exploring the Link Between Distributed Leadership and Job Satisfaction of School Leaders.Hester Hulpia & Geert Devos - 2009 - Educational Studies 35 (2):153-171.
    The main purpose of this study was to map school leaders? perceptions concerning the cooperation of the leadership team, the distribution of leadership functions and participative decision?making, and to asses their relative weight in terms of predicting school leaders? job satisfaction. Also, the effect of demographical and structural school variables (i.e. seniority, job experience, school size, size of the leadership team, school type) on school leaders? job satisfaction was examined. A sample of 130 school leaders of 46 large secondary schools (...)
