The area of cognitive and interactive perspectives in educational administration is receiving increasing attention. This review focuses on research of cognitive and interactive perspectives in educational administration published since 1990. The domain approach has two fold. The one is teachers' social behavior in the schools in terms of self-efficacy, empowerment, collective-efficacy, and relationship with principals. The another is the characteristics of teachers' interaction in terms of social communication skills, social support, stress, interpersonal conflict, principals' leadership, and relationship with school counselors. Theories of social and cognitive psychology have been applied to explain the behavior of teachers in school. The review discusses changes directed at improving the quality of teachers' social behavior and interaction.
