Abstract

Problem Statement: Creation of a common culture in educational organizations, particularly in schools, depends first on the presence and cohesiveness of an interacting group of individuals. Individual aims are more likely to turn into a shared objective in schools with a strong, participatory culture. Culture shared by all school stakeholders makes the actualization of both short- and long-term objectives easier. In this context, the leadership role of school administrator is essential to ensure that employees associate with school culture.
