Директора школ мегаполисов. Как они управляют образовательным процессом?

Multiple international studies confirmed existence of correlation between students’ outcomes and the principal’s leadership profile, where the main focus of principals and their management teams should be on the educational process itself to ensure high quality education. Therefore, this paper attempts to compare the leadership profiles of school leaders and identify the way they decided to manage their schools in four Russian megacities. The methodology comprises quantitative and qualitative ap- proaches. In this way, quantitative approach comprised survey of principals and their management teams. The instructional lead- ership self‐evaluation tool developed by F. Hallinger served as the basis for carrying out the survey in Russian megacities. Thus, leadership profiles of principals and their management teams of four megacities were compared and as a consequence hypothesis were formulated and conclusions were drawn regarding the leadership profile of school managers in managing the educational process. Furthermore, qualitative approach comprising semi‐structured interviews with school principals and their management teams allowed to confirm formulated assumptions. In conclusion, the paper throws light on the possible limita- tions on the use of research results, and the prospects for further studies are indicated.
