Exploring Leadership Characteristics of Public and Private High School Administrators in Malabon City: A Comparative Analysis


The study investigated Administrators-Leadership Characteristics in terms of leadership style, traits and integrity. Twenty-one (21) administrators, 145 middle-level administrators and 378 teachers were involved in the study from twelve 12 public and nine (9) private high schools in the Division of Malabon. The descriptive method of research was used with a questionnaire as the data gathering instrument. The hypotheses were formulated and tested using t-test, ANOVA procedures and Pearson r statistical tools. The findings showed that there was a significant difference when comparing the leadership styles, and traits of public and private school principals. When testing the difference between the integrity of administrators, the result showed that there was no significant difference between the two. It also revealed that there was no significant relationship between leadership style and leadership traits among public school administrators. There was a significant relationship between the leadership style and trait among private school principals. In terms of the relationship between leadership style and integrity, both administrators showed no significant relationship. The leadership traits and integrity showed that there was a significant relationship among the private school administrator and public school administrators showed no significant relationship between traits and integrity. Based on the findings, it is recommended that administrators should be aware of their leadership characteristics and its effect to the organization. Training should be given to develop and strengthen leadership traits and integrity. Finally, a Strategic Leadership Program for administrators must be reinforced.
