Abstract

This meta-analysis study aims to analyze the relationship between school leadership and collective teacher efficacy in a cultural context. The meta-analysis included a total of 47 studies in different cultures in different countries. The results of the analysis for all 47 studies involved suggested a medium-level relationship between school leadership and collective teacher efficacy. The combined effect size was calculated for all studies according to random effect models (ES =.48). And it is concluded that the power distance and long-term orientation of countries positively predict the relationship between school leadership and collective teacher efficacy. In addition, it is concluded that the individualism tendency of countries negatively predicts the relationship between school leadership and collective teacher efficacy. Moreover, it is determined that the uncertainty avoidance and masculinity tendencies of countries do not predict the relationship between school leadership and collective teacher efficacy. In line with these results, school managers working in countries that have high power distance, collectivity, long-term investment, and limitation tendency should benefit from these opportunities to carry out and complete the school mission. School managers in countries that have low power distance, collectivity, long-term investment, and limitation tendency should develop different strategies.
