Abstract

This study aimed to identify the level of teacher leadership among teachers from indigenous primary schools, Negeri Sembilan. The Teacher Leadership Self - Assessment (TLSA) questionnaire was used to measure the level of teacher leadership. This quantitative study involved 50 respondents consisting of teachers who were selected at simple random. Findings of the study showed that the I-CVI value achieved was between 0.83 to 1.00, S-CVI value between 0.97 to 1.00 and modified Kappa Coefficient value between 0.81 to 1.00 which proved that the instrument in this study had a high content validity. Other than that, Cronbach’s Alpha value, Cronbach’s Alpha if Item Deleted, Inter-Item Correlation and Corrected Item-Total Correlation also explained that the TLSA instrument in this study had good reliability. The results showed that teacher leadership was at a high level (mean=4.46, SD=0.42). Therefore, the leadership among teachers needs to be prioritized because teachers who have leadership values are highly competent and able to produce students with high marketability. Ministry of Education needs competent teachers to address all challenges, work together towards transformation of national education and the success of Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013-2025.
