School is the first programmed educational environment where changes start for both individuals and society. Because most of the changes and developments occur in individuals and organizations result from this feature of schools. Therefore schools constantly have to continue learning as a social learning system. That means schools are expected to be constant learners and co-act with learners. So educators taking an active part in education means that classical education understanding can be reshaped according to its new values and missions and some micro level problems can be solved with the help of available infrastructure. School operation formed by this understanding and contemporary orientation and control depends on a real leader school manager who can guide this process. The purpose of this research is to put forward school managers' leadership characteristics perceived by teachers and to search the relationship between leadership perception and school so that schools can show desired effectiveness and productivity. According to the results of the research 71% of the teachers do not consider the managers as an educational leader. (Contains 5 tables.)
