2BUILDING AND MAINTENANCE OF RELATIONSHIPS AbstractThis comparative article critique focuses on how school leaders within the educational field work to continue the pace of the everchanging curriculum, content, schools, employees, andstudents. It offers the positive and negative side for each article and finally compares each articleto the others. Relationship building is ultimately challenging and with the generations changing alongside the work ethics and lack of parental guidance, it becomes a constant battle for school leaders to communicate and build the necessary relationships with the community members, parents, and students. This paper introduces the steps in becoming a great leader with the use of the CCER theory, using humor and disagreement within the classroom, the necessity for reform in presenting material to the students, and the views of placing trust in the government within theeducational field. So, how can we build and mend the relationships with school leaders to the community, parents, students, and staff?
3BUILDING AND MAINTENANCE OF RELATIONSHIPS Building and Maintenance of RelationshipsThe Center for Creative Leadership released a research study that highlighted “the increasing importance of leader skill in building and mending relationships” (Munro, 2014, p. 7).Relationship building is simply embracing the different and making it a common factor to all parties involved. Ideas, work, and strategies that are shared and collaborated among should be an implemented system and a required goal that educators must maintain and place as the utmost importance. This critique review incorporates journal articles that do just that: discuss the role of public relations in today’s educational system. “How can public schools improve public relations strategies, particularly in communication between teachers and students” (Kosiczky & Mullen, 2013, p. 6)? Throughout the article, Humor in High School and the Role of Teacher Leaders in School Public Relations, the authors discuss how humor, when used in the classroom, affects the students learning and exploits the teacher-student relationship. This study utilizes quantitative data that teachers and leaders reported on given intervals. The authors define communication and collaboration as “a major area of school public relations and an essential knowledge base and skill domain for effective leadership” (Kosiczky & Mullen, 2013, p. 7). The authors imply that the use of humor will positively influence relationships, and impact the climate, communication, and engagement (CCER). The authors define and explain the CCER model being used “for increasing understanding of some of the elements involved in enhancing teaching effectiveness” (Kosiczky & Mullen, 2013, p. 8).
