ABSTRACT

Teachers occupy a central and vital position in any educational system and that

their attitudes and commitment have been of paramount interest to educational

authorities. The study seeks to examine the influence of head teachers’ leadership

style on teachers’ commitment in the Adentan Municipality. Descriptive design of

the quantitative method of research was employed for the study. The systematic

random and simple random sampling methods were used in selecting respondents.

Questionnaire was the main data collection instrument and a sample size of 100

teachers was used. Frequencies, tables, and percentages were also used to present

the data. The research found that the leadership style mainly exhibited by head

teachers was transformational as teachers are encouraged to develop their

strengths and articulate compelling vision of the future. It was further identified

that factors such as effectiveness of leadership, behavior and supportiveness of

head teachers influenced teachers’ commitment in the basic schools. The study

also showed a positive correlation between head teachers leadership style and

teachers commitment. It is recommended that the Ministry of Education and the

Ghana Education Service should organize in-service training for head teachers in

the practice of the full range leadership styles to increase commitment levels of

teachers.
