In recent years, parents pay more attention to the quality of school education which leads to more active parent’s involvement in learning activities both at home and school. Therefore, to be an effective leader who is able to establish sound interactive relationship and partnership with the students and the parents has become one of the most important qualities that an effective teacher should possess. The present study aimed at investigating the effect of teacher’s leadership styles on student’s learning attitudes, from parents’ perspective. The ultimate purpose of the study is to identify the leadership style(s) that could promote students’ positive learning attitudes that could be provided as a valuable reference for educational institutes and educators.
