The subject of educational leadership would usually commence immediately by approaching the topic & work related to it. This paper is attempting to enhance the scope to examine some aspects of leadership and then to synthesize these to the concept of educational leadership. In Pakistan educational leadership is a stroke of luck, not a nourished and groomed phenomenon. It appears on an adhoc basis in the educational environment; few & far between examples of educational leadership exist. But to explain this phenomenon, enhancing the scope of leadership may be one way of explaining it better. We have also attempted to evaluate educational policy from high benchmark countries in education such as USA, Canada, UK and a comparison of Pakistani education policy and practice. However the limitation of this paper is that we did not have sufficient data and information on principals of educational institutes of Pakistan and education policy and the historical perspective of the same. But the comparison makes an interesting case. There is a shortage of principals that have a vision and ability to lead in education, as they are not selected on merits; ill-educated; not sufficient grounding for the position of principal. The need is to break away from ‘policy mechanic paradigm' and go for ‘classroom culturalist model' and this is influenced by the quality of leadership. The objective of this research are to understand what leadership in reality is and how it translates in the context of education, and to understand what a good model of educational leadership is and how to develop this in the context of cultural and regional factors in Pakistan.
