Abstract

This study aims to determine the relationship between transformational leadership and the learning organization feature of educational organizations through a meta-analysis. Also, it is investigated whether the relationship is a moderator in terms of school type and sample size. On this topic, 16 studies were available on the Scholar Google, YOK (Higher Education Institution), ProQuest, and ULAKBIM search portals. The studies were scanned with such keywords as learner organization , student-teacher learning , leadership , leadership styles , transformational leadership , and so on. The studies were checked to make sure if they are necessary and sufficient features for meta-analysis. To analyze with meta-analysis, the assumptions were checked for publication bias and effect model. It was found out that there was no publication bias and the model was a random effect model. As a result, it can be said that transformational leadership has a strong impact on learning organization. Furthermore, not only school type but also sample size is a moderator in the relationship between transformational leadership and learning organization in educational organizations.
