Distributed Leadership in schools: changes in the perception of educational practices


Distributed for improvement. A leadership practice development program was implemented in twenty Chilean schools. The perception of frequency of changes was investigated through the pre and post application of a multifactorial questionnaire of DL. The results highlight that three out of four centers perceive changes in their leadership practices. Primary schools show a higher frequency of changes in relation to secondary institutions. It is possible to conclude that both internal and external organizational factors favor the implementation of DL, since there is a high conviction that developing shared leadership favors learning results in students.
