Cetin and Kinik wrote an article entitled “Effects of Leadership on Student Success through the Balanced Leadership Framework” and this critique focuses on this article. The author aims to investigate the role of balanced leadership for students’ success despite the mismatch between his purpose and the way he discussed balanced leadership. In this study, after reviewing the literature, a qualitative analysis related to the 8 leadership responsibilities (Culture, Ideals and Beliefs, Communication, Visibility, Input, Relationships, Situational Awareness, Affirmation) that are necessary to form the Purposeful Community (which is not exactly match with the intended purpose students success) has been made. The author raised interesting issue in the leadership arena but the issues raised are not in line with the role of balanced leadership on students’ success that goes beyond this creation of purposeful community which seems broad aim to be succeed after long time of schooling. To this end, reviewer underscored that however the author inclined to bring hot and ample issue the way he pass through needs revision and re correction, ways of sampling, singularity of data collection instrument leads to problem of generalizability, replicability and trustworthiness of the findings.
