Abstract

          The objectives of this study were: 1) to develop the causal relationship model of administration-related factors affecting the excellence of schools under the office of the basic education commission in the North-eastern region of Thailand; 2) to examine the goodness-of-fit between the developed causal relationship model with the empirical data. There were 2 phases in this study. Research conceptual framework was built in the first phase by an analysis of relevant documents and researches, an interview with experts and a study of outstanding schools. The second phase was a research hypothesis examination. Data was collected by using a 5-level rating scale questionnaire. The sample group consisted of 510 school directors and teachers in primary schools under the office of the basic education commission in the North-eastern region of Thailand. Data was analyzed by determining the frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, pearson product moment correlation coefficient. Confirmatory factor analysis and goodness-of-fit examination between the hypothetical model and empirical data was also conducted.
The study yielded the following results:
1. The developed causal relationship model of administration-related factors affecting the excellence of schools under the office of the basic education commission in the North-eastern region of Thailand comprises 5 factors, which are academic leadership, organizational strategy, process management, learning process management and school excellency.
