Sivalingam, Shiveh and Abdul Kadir, Suhaida and Asimiran, Soaib (2017) Collective leadership among Malaysian secondary school teachers. In: 4th International Conference on Educational Research and Practice (ICERP) 2017, 26-27 July 2017, The Everly Hotel, Putrajaya. (pp. 61-67).


To date the increasing trend in the teaching fraternity is moving towards one where members of an educational institution play a managerial role. The term given to this style of leading is collective leadership and it is given immense importance in the Malaysian Education Blueprint 2013-2025 which states that the system is moving towards having every participating member in a school to have greater share in decision making. This paper studies collective leadership by demography on Malaysian secondary schools in Kuala Lumpur. The results show that there is no significant difference between gender as well as subjects and collective leadership, nonetheless, teachers with higher education and those who taught lower secondary levels had higher efficacy in collective leadership.
