This study employed data from TALIS 2018 (Teaching and Learning International Survey) to examine and compare the indicators on principal leadership between Taiwan and other countries. Based on the samples of the principals from secondary school, Compare Means, including descriptive statistics and one sample t-test, was used to compare and analyze the diffidence between Taiwan and other countries. Our results indicated that, with the focus on the variable of “Curriculum and teaching-related tasks and meetings”, Taiwan is significantly higher than other countries. Regarding the results, we consider that national curriculum reform in Taiwan play an influential role in making principals to engage in the work related to teaching and curriculum development. Finally, this study also suggests some possible directions for future research by applying the TALIS database.
