A Comparative Analysis of School Principals’ Leadership Styles and School Impact in the USA and Kuwait

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study focuses on the indirect relationship between school principals' leadership style and school impact in the USA and Kuwait, where the school environment is the intermediate factor. An additional objective is to investigate the influence of culture on principals' leadership style. Internationally comparative data from Kuwait and the USA are used to empirically investigate the relationship. Descriptive statistics and ANOVA were used in the statistical analysis of this study. The principal leadership style is found to be very different between Kuwait and the USA. Kuwaiti school principals are authoritative in their leadership style, while their USA counterparts tend to be integrative. Interestingly, although Kuwaiti school principals are authoritative, data indicate a cooperative school environment.
