THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TEACHER TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP AND STUDENT OUTCOMES
Transformational leadership is a well documented and validated leadership perspective studied in management and organizational contexts. This study applies the transformational leadership model to the instructional context. Specifically, this study sought to examine the relationships between transformational leadership and teacher immediacy, student empowerment, learning, motivation, and satisfaction. A positive relationship between transformational leadership and the above variables was hypothesized and all hypotheses were significantly supported. The study ends with an analysis of the transformational leadership model in the instructional context, and directions for future research extending the application of the transformational leadership model in the classroom.
