The study used a descriptive survey and target population were the teachers and head Teacher Which Constituted 104 respondents with a sample size of 55 respondents. This study explained the concept of teachers’ attitude towards the implementation of instructional leadership in public secondary schools in Mbita Sub-County, Homa Bay County, Kenya. Questionnaires were used as the data collection tool. The study was premised on the contingency management theory by Fielder. According to Fielder (1964) contingency approach to management is based on the theory that management effectiveness is contingent, or dependent upon the interplay between the application of management behaviors and specific situations. The reliability of the research instruments was determined using Cronbach’s Alpha and a coefficient of r˃.6 was reported. The data obtained were analysed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 22. The study established that the teachers like the way instructional leadership is carried out and they help their leaders to ensure effective management of the school affairs. The study equally found out that teachers carry out their assignments within the goals and aspirations of the schools. This is because of the positive direction demonstrated to them through the school leadership which promotes accountability. The study recommends that the Ministry of Education needs to organize frequent trainings on instructional leadership for the teachers in order to fully understand and embrace this kind of leadership. Equally, the head teachers need to mentor the teachers on instructional leadership requirements and roles in order to enable the teachers take up such responsibilities in future. Finally, the stakeholders to appreciate the fact that management of schools depend very much on the circumstances/environment under which it is carried out and therefore allow flexibility in cases where some of the rules have been adjusted to meet the needs of a particular school.
