Journal of Education and Learning, v2 n4 p19-30 2013
The role of leadership in the educational process has come to the forefront of international research through the establishment of new organizations and the number of studies that have been conducted. New concepts and types of leadership enter the educational arena in order to meet the contemporary needs of principals and students. Styles of leadership that encourage the principal to share responsibilities and distribute authority have been examined by scholars. The present study provides an examination of the application of distributed leadership practice and its effects on the Greek primary, secondary and high schools. it will also contribute to the empirical research on distributed leadership by advancing the understanding of the relationship between this leadership practice and teachers' engagement. As far as the demographic characteristics are concerned, this research showed that the age and the teaching experience are those which affect mostly the engagement of teachers. Finally, the study concluded that there is a difference between the teachers' and the principals' engagement with the leadership practices at schools.
