The purpose of the study was to compare head teachers’ effectiveness by using teachers’ rating on quality indicators and their school performance through their gender and school location. Head teacher effectiveness is a process to measure that how quality indicators recommended by the state are implemented by head teacher in institution. School performance is defined as the extent to which long or short educational targets are achieved by the teachers, students and schools. In district Sahiwal, 1026 Secondary School Teachers evaluated their head teachers’ effectiveness on HTEQ developed by the researchers by employing multistage sampling technique. For school performance, MEAs monthly visit reports were used to collect the data on the factors: teacher presence, school cleanliness, functioning of facilities and student presence, while data on student achievement score were obtained from their schools. To analyze the data, both of variables were compared by using T-test for independent sample. The study revealed that female teachers’ rated their head teachers significantly more effective than male teachers’ rated, while urban teachers’ rated their head teachers significantly more effective than rural teachers’ rated. The study recommended that reasons might be explored for lower effectiveness and school performance of male head teachers through further studies.
