Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine research conducted on head teacher leadership in Zambia and tease out possible inclination towards developing an assessment model that will be capable of identifying leadership behaviours and practices that are most likely lead to school performance and student achievement. The paper proposes the development and establishment of an assessment model in Zambia in line with the learning-centred leadership framework while taking into account local context as a basis. The Kalabo Assessment of Leadership in Education (KALE) model is proposed as an alternative framework for Zambian standards.
