One of the educational crisis characteristics in Indonesia is that the teachers have not been able to show their adequate work performances. In addition, work performances of teachers have not been fully supported by adequate degree of competences. Hence, there must be a comprehensive effort to improve the teachers' competence. One of the efforts that can be carried out is the optimization of school headmasters' role.
