ABSTRACT This study investigated the relationship between Head teachers’ leadership style and teacher performance. The study sought to investigate and establish the extent to which leadership sty~es contribute to teacher performance in selected public secondary schools in Burera District, Rwanda. The study was conducted by cross sectional survey design, data being collected during the month of August 2011 using questionnaires from 15 administrative staff (Head teachers and deputies) and 164 students. The sample was randomly and purposively selected from the accessible population. Data was analyzed using percentages, which were calculated from the frequencies of the data in the tables. The study revealed that democratic and autocratic leadership styles existed in public secondary schools in Burera District and were affecting service delivery. The democratic leadership style is the most desired by the majority of respondents no matter when autocratic leadership style is called up on. It was also found out that bureaucratic leadership style is rarely used whereas laissez faire leadership style was considered to be the worst in promoting teachers’ performance in regards to completion of their respective academic tasks. It was therefore concluded that democratic style was preferred by teachers and when applied in schools it led to positive teacher performance. Hence, according to findings, there is a significant relationship between leadership styles used by head teachers and the level of teacher performance in public secondary school in Burera District (R-Value=0.948, Sig-Value=0.000). The results further revealed that female head teachers use better leadership styles (with mean=3.6700) as compared to those used by male head teacher (with mean=2.2300) and the means were compared. Consequently the following recommendations were made: 1. The Ministry of Education should organize workshops in secondary schools aimed at improving secondary school leadership. 2. Head teachers should provide opportunities for increased teacher autonomy at work through delegation and increased responsibility through promotion.
