This study investigates the Palestinian Ministry of Education's policy for selecting headmasters, through the ministry's official document, based on the leader's responsibilities framework. Few researches studied policy documents that involve selecting headmasters in the developing countries, so this study contributes to research on selecting headmasters in the developing countries in general and in the Palestinian context in particular. The analysis was based on the 'responsibilities of the school leader' framework developed by Marzano et al. The collected data, after transcription, was analysed by using lens of the constant comparison theory. To do so, the transcribed data was compared and contrasted with the 21 responsibilities of the headmasters identified by Marzano et al. The findings of the study showed that the studied document is consistent to some extent with school leadership responsibilities. However, the document needs to be more detailed and publicly available. The study raises concerns concerning preparing headmasters that are more qualified.
