  • TITLE: Prospects of Principal Leadership in Schools and Colleges in Bangladesh

    AUTHORS: Mohammed Zaber Hossain, M. Abul Kashem Mozumder

    KEYWORDS: Principal Leadership, Principals, Managers, Educational Administration, Schools and Colleges in Bangladesh

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Social Sciences, Vol.7 No.9, September 3, 2019

    ABSTRACT: Though a concept latest in the world perspective, principal leadership in schools and colleges in Bangladesh has got no recognition. Even the educationists in Bangladesh advocate principals as managers. The objective of this study was to identify the prospects of principal leadership practices in schools and colleges in Bangladesh. The study made use of a qualitative approach in the form of a content analysis to meet up the objective of this study. It was carried out on the related issues like an Overview of Principal Leadership, School Culture and discourse like Principals as Leaders or Managers. The top-down system of the educational administration in Bangladesh does not allow principals to exercise their leadership. The existing attitude harbours the notion that principals are meant for looking after the management of the educational institutions. The idea of school as being a social centre and principal as a leader are almost absent in the practices of schools and colleges in Bangladesh. Bureaucracy has developed in the educational administration in such a way that it fettered principals to play the role of a manager only. This study will help through the analysis of national and international literature to establish the prospect of principal leadership in Bangladeshi context.
