The aim of this qualitative study is to analyse the content of randomly selected articles on leadership
and school management published in scientific journals in Turkey, and to determine the descriptive
characteristics, main and sub-dimensions, and general trends of those articles. For this purpose, the
“leadership” and “school management” directories were scanned in Google Academy. The samples
comprised randomly selected 30 articles that were published between the years of 2015-2021. The
content analysis of these 30 articles was based on main and sub-themes. The results revealed that when
the main themes of articles about leadership were examined, the subject of pedagogical leadership,
effective leadership and rotational leadership were discussed more than other articles. In addition, in
the articles related to school management, it was observed that organizational silence and favouritism
emerged. These main themes created some negative sub-themes, such as fear, anxiety, anxiety, and lack
of confidence and alienation of staff. In that case, it was observed that teachers were also influenced by
their self-sufficiency perceptions.

Journal for Educators, Teachers and Trainers, 2014, Volume 5, Issue 3, Pages 243-254

This paper presents a study of business leadership in medium and large Andalusian companies with a gender focus. It is related with corporate responsibility practices, emphasizing ethics, social and political demands of the business world. This is part of the axis of Equal Opportunities in the work of the Equal Project, an initiative of the European Social Fund (2002-2007). Key concepts, research methodology: Both quantitative, using cuestionnaires, and qualitative, by interviewing, methods and results are defined. Quantitative data on the participation of women in the business, and the qualitative ones that show hotspots are presented: General skills and significant professional women managers and barriers to equality. The conclusions point to the need for a corporate culture change around social responsibility measures to advance equal opportunities, and with it the integration of skills and people in the world of work: the development of more effective and flexible forms of work organization, the Joint leadership and support services that make it possible to reconcile family and professional life as well as to reduce the wage gap between sexes, and support the abolition of the horizontal and vertical occupational segregation. Finally, guidelines for the training of people as citizens, and their relationship to corporate citizenship are suggested.

On the road to political equality between men and women we stop at one of the variables that we consider essential: women's access to leadership and management positions in education and more specifically in the University. We try to focus on the barriers that have hindered the path to match statistics and, on the other hand, we seek to investigate the female leadership style considering it an added value for organizations in education to promote important social changes. Research in the field of educational organization, over the past decade, have made a progress in the search for good practices in management and leadership in educational contexts. At the same time, the studies try to go deeper in the difficulties for women for management. They also try to find if their leadership style affects school success, considering that in education the percentage of female teachers is very representative. Also these studies in recent years moved all these issues to the University field, trying to meet the problems of femaleUniversity professors to access management positions within a culture that is still very masculine today.
