Relegating School Principal Leadership From Teacher Professional Learning: Social Network Analysis Approach


Researchers have been trying to identify through which ‘path’ the principal’s leadership practice is most impactful to the quality of teaching and learning as a preferred outcome. On the other hand, there is some evidence that its influence on student learning is indirect. This study seeks to contribute to the knowledge regarding influence of school leadership on teacher professional learning by investigating their relationship using a social network analysis (SNA) approach in Indonesian context. SNA is applied to examine the level of leadership influence in the observed schools. Social network analysis measurement is going to be used to analyse the relations among variables. This research wants to offer insights to Indonesian policymakers and practitioners on how they could support teachers professional learning in a society where the influence of leadership on teaching and learning is still poorly explored in network perspective. Preliminary result of this research in progress shows that although the principal still has significant influence on teacher professional learning, there are influential individuals outside formal leadership hierarchy. It is one of evidence of a shared/distributed leadership in practice with which further exploration could identify the attributes and practice lead to higher organisational effectiveness and agility.
