Instructional, Transformational, and Managerial Leadership and Student Achievement: High School Principals Make a Difference
Valentine, Jerry W.; Prater, Mike
NASSP Bulletin, v95 n1 p5-30 Mar 2011
This statewide study examined the relationships between principal managerial, instructional, and transformational leadership and student achievement in public high schools. Differences in student achievement were found when schools were grouped according to principal leadership factors. Principal leadership behaviors promoting instructional and curriculum improvement were linked to achievement. Within transformational leadership, the principal's ability to identify a vision and provide an appropriate model had the greatest relationship to achievement. Principal educational level also positively correlated with each leadership factor. (Contains 3 figures and 4 tables.)
