An abstract is required. It is evidently clear from the discussion that charter schools’ heads have a responsibility for all stakeholders to make clear and concise communication. Involvement with the community is also crucial as is possession of character traits like decency, perseverance, honesty, respect, and empathy. The distinguishing factor in charter schools is their innovativeness in teaching techniques and learning methods, as opposed to the regulation-bound public schools. As far as school leadership is concerned, charter schools introduce a new dimension in as far as control and freedom in creativity and curriculum development is concerned. The skills possessed by the leaders in these schools have significance in that they are not leaders in only instruction methods but will also fill in as financial and operational managers of their respective institutions. By the mere fact that these schools are mostly start-ups, there exists no set system that they must follow, thus, the onus of developing and maintaining the financial, operational and instruction modules to be adhered to mainly falls with the leadership. Zimmer and Buddin observe that the leaders, thus, have to shoulder the responsibilities of management, principal and leader of instructions. The profiling of the techniques and qualities of leadership among charter schools in Florida is the main goal of this study.

Charter schools are public schools and thus funded through public means similar to traditional district schools. The major difference between the two is that more flexibility in curriculum development is enjoyed by the charter schools and that an individual or group of individuals can start a charter school.
