Yavuz, Olcay; Gülmez, Gülçin
Research in Educational Administration & Leadership, v3 n1 p88-120 Jul 2018
In an effort to develop and support high quality urban school leaders, this study examined what factors affect pre-service urban school leaders' perception of preparedness for performing instructional leadership activities. The findings revealed that participating in a leadership training program is the only significant factor that predicts urban educators' scores on instructional leadership readiness measures. By examining perception of preparedness of aspiring urban school leaders the findings contribute to our understanding about some perspectives to prepare and develop urban school leaders solve large and complex problems related to the curriculum, instruction and assessment. Implications for preparing performance ready school leaders in high need urban schools are further discussed.
