Abstract
The aim of this study is to suggest some procedures for activating leadership practices that support the achievement of competitive advantage in the basic education schools in the Sultanate of Oman. It seeks to identify the theoretical bases of the school leadership in order to achieve the competitive advantage in schools and explore the degree of responsiveness of school principals, assistant principals and teachers to leadership practices in support of achieving the competitive advantage in basic education schools in Muscat based on the following dimensions: distinguished human resources, better physical and financial resources, integrated and flexible organizational structure, quality of educational service provided. The study also seeks to identify the differences of opinions among the sample responses about these practices, according to demographic variables (sex, job, school type). The research was based on the descriptive approach and the use of the questionnaires administered to (9) school principals and (11) assistants and (262) teachers in basic education schools in the Muscat Governorate in Oman. The research reached a number of results, the most important of which are:
• The degree to which the sample responded to school leadership practices in support of competitive advantage was poor.
• The least practiced dimensions were the integrated and flexible organizational structure followed by the quality of educational service provided, then outstanding human resources, and finally the best material and financial resources.
• There were statistically significant differences of opinions based on the type of school (government-private) in the dimension of human resources excellence and the dimension of the integrated and flexible organizational structure and the questionnaire as a whole in favour of public schools.
• There were no statistically significant differences between sample responses based on sex.
• There were statistically significant differences between the responses of the sample based on position (principal/teacher) in the dimension of distinguished human resources and the questionnaire as a whole in favour of teachers.
