Dr. Rasmil T. Abdurasul | Dr. Sar-Ana Misuari-Abdurasul
Abstract: This study was undertaken to investigate the leadership attributes of women administrators in public schools in the Schools Division of Isabela City, Basilan, Philippines. It explored the leadership attributes of women as school leaders when moderating variables were considered. It further delved into the context of women leaders running institutions when curriculum and instruction as well as governance were put into the picture. The opportunities earned by women as school leaders were also given emphasis in the study. Employing quanti-quali sequential research design with twenty-two (22) respondents, results shows that women school administrators are flexible, perseverant, transparent, risk-taker and committed. It further shows that length of service is significantly related with leadership attributes while educational attainment and age do not imply any positive correlation. Furthermore, women school leaders view managing institutions in terms of curriculum and instruction with adherence, adaptability, and implementation while governance with flexibility, responsiveness and transparency. Exposure to public service, discovery to own strengths and weaknesses, ability to inspire others and the chance to grow better are among opportunities related by women leaders in public institutions.
