Authors : Ahmad Suriansyah and Aslamiah

Abstract: This study was instigated by the issues pertaining to principal’s transformational leadership towards organizations that were not encouraging and coupled with the mixed findings in previous studies. Its primary purpose was to determine the differences between transformational leadership in excellence primary schools within the no achievement primary school in Banjarmasin and the differences between transformational leadership in excellence primary schools with no achievement primary school in urban and suburban of Banjarmasin cities. A cross-sectional survey design was used and a standardized questionnaire administered to collect data from selected respondents. A total of 261 primary school teachers from Banjarmasin City were randomly selected to participate in this study. The instruments were the multifactor leadership questionnaire developed by Bass and Avolio in 2004. The findings showed that there is a significant distinction between transformational leadership in excellence primary schools within in non-achievement primary school; there is no significant distinction between transformational leadership in excellence primary schools with no achievement primary school in urban and suburban. The findings are consistent with some previous findings, especially with regard to the researcher’s recommendations that Western theories should be tested prior to their adoption in practice. Additionally, the findings will contribute more knowledge to the role of transformational leadership. These studies also contribute to the development of policy related to educational management in Indonesia, especially in South Kalimantan.
