From the Paper:

"The benefits provided to teachers through the teacher empowerment are inclusive of increases in teacher job performance, improved morale of teachers, increased knowledge of subject matter and pedagogy, and finally resulting higher motivation among students as well as higher achievement. As a result, teachers, and ultimately, their students and their schools, could potentially receive the full benefits of teacher empowerment if principals hone their focus on the appropriate leadership behaviors and policies to effectively maximize teacher empowerment (Keiser & Shen, 2000:115). Short and Rinehart (1993) "Teacher empowerment and school climate" p.592 state that, "Teacher empowerment relates to greater organizational effectiveness.""
