Who is a school leader?

Received Date:01 January 2017, Accepted Date:01 January 2017, Published Date:01 January 2017


School leadership models in India are hierarchical and either vertical or Horizontal. The power flows from top to bottom. This approach hinders the autonomy of the Teaching fraternity and creativity of students. The leadership role of the Indian school ought to be transformed to a ‘synchronizing’ force and expected to act as ‘facilitator’ of change. School leader should have a silver lining of academic leadership who can really contribute in Curricular and CoCurricular activities of the Educational Institution rather than playing the role of Manager or Administrator. Let us understand the perspectives and paradigms of school leadership in India and develop a pragmatic, proactive and result-oriented unconventional academic leadership for Indian schools.
