Education is the most important tool which helps youth to lead healthy and fulfilling career. It is one area governments all over the world focus to have a happier and prosperous nation all times to come. To provide quality education there should be a school with a good policy, a good learning environment, good facilities, motivated staff, and so on. To have these conditions, it is vital to have good leadership. Principals in the school play an important role in the functioning and managing of the school effectively.
On the contrary, the quality of education in Bhutan is questioned as never before. Schools of Bhutan came under public scrutiny where the quality of education is being questioned as never before. In such a situation each stakeholder blames the other for the deterioration of quality. In school, teachers blame poor leadership and principals blame the quality of teachers for the same. Considering such an issue, the topic was chosen to study how leadership roles impact teachers’ performance in schools.
A qualitative research design was used to find out attributes of principals in selected schools in Thimphu where most senior and qualified principals manage the schools. For this study, an in-depth study was conducted for two schools from Thimphu Dzongkhags by interviewing three teachers from each school. To cover more schools and to make the result more comprehensive, three aspiring vice-principals to become principals in future were also interviewed based on the interview questionnaire prepared. A semi-structured interview schedule was used based on the study’s research questions. Data generated from the interview questions concerning professional capability were analyzed and thematically coded by the researcher.
Through this study, the researcher provided insights and implications for school principals which would greatly help principals to run effectively on refraining from the exhibition of such qualities.
