Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the instructional leadership and its relationship with some variables such as gender, educational status, career and working year in the same school in Turkey. The study conducted with 614 teachers at 45 schools all over Turkey in the 2017–2018 academic year. Data were collected via instructional leadership scale which was applied to teachers and it had two dimensions: trust and focus on instruction. The findings showed that teachers’ perception of trust about school administrators had a significant relationship according to their gender. In other words, male teachers thought school administrators more trustful than female teachers. Another result indicated that perceptions of teachers on instructional leadership had no significant relationship according to teachers’ educational status and their career years. However, teachers’ perceptions of school administrators’ focusing on teaching had a statistically significant relationship to teachers’ working years in the same school.
