Abstract

This study focuses on the effective leadership style in achieving educational goals in Singida Municipal secondary schools. Two objectives that guided this study were: to find out leadership style frequently used by heads of schools and to examine effective leadership style in achieving educational goals. Data were collected using observation, documentary review and questionnaire. Data collected were analysed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 16.0.This analysis used based on descriptive statistics (frequencies and percentages). Frequencies used to show the number of subjects in a given category and percentages to compare the sub-groups that differed in size for easily communication to the majority of the readers and were presented using words and tables. The study sample was 81 chosen using simple random procedures. The findings of the study have shown that heads of schools use both democratic and authoritarian leadership styles but democratic leadership style is dominant. Some heads of schools do not emphasize effective leadership style as required by the commission for education. In case where heads of schools use effective leadership style, it achieves educational goals. However unpaid attention to effective leadership style affected educational goals negatively. The study recommended that the government through MoEVT should encourage continuous inspection base on effective leadership style. Democratic leadership style was recommended to be used in secondary school while authoritarian leadership style was not recommended to be used in secondary school settings.
