Supervision can and should be the most important function of a principal. One of the things that effects the quality of supervision as practiced by the elementary school principal is whether there is a lack of supervision or whether there is an abundance of supervision. Thus, it is the purpose of this thesis to attempt to discover the degree of freedom allowed the elementary school teacher by her supervising principal in her classroom and in her daily work. If the degree of freedom allowed can be discovered, this could be compared with what is the ideal according to educational authorities. This comparison could be an aid in helping the principal and the teacher improve supervision and thus improve their school. If the foregoing can be accomplished, the ultimate purpose of education would be closer to realization.
