Abstract

Although decentralization has led to greater autonomy for school boards [SB]; many of them seem to be ineffective. This paper examined the extent to which SB members perceived their tasks as challenges or as threats. Bandura's self-efficacy theory framed this qualitative study in which 108 participants were purposively sampled. A Skills Confidence Inventory (SCI) was used to collect data. The results from this study show that SB members have moderate to high self-efficacy beliefs in 5 of the 7 roles that were investigated. Further studies should be conducted to determine the responsive levels existing within the school governance environments.
