The impact of the principal's instructional leadership on the culture of teaching and learning in the school

Recently it has been noticed that there is a marked decline in the culture of teaching and

learning (COLT) in sortie of the schools in the KwaZulu Natal province. An investigation was
undertaken to check whether the instructional leadership of school principals was a contributory
factor to this decline.



A literature study and an empirical investigation was done to identify if any relationship existed
between the instructional leadership ofthe principal and COLT in schools. From the findings it
became apparent that such a relationship did exist. Schools where principals neglected such
instructional leadership roles were more susceptible to perpetuate the erosion of the culture of
teaching and learning (COLT), whereas principals who do fulfil their instructional tasks tend to
alleviate the erosion of COLT.

The educational implications of the findings are discussed and guidelines are provided to assist
school principals in attaining their roles as effective instructional leaders. / Educational Leadership and Management / M. Ed. (Educational Management)
