Creation of 'Vision Schools' is an important step in the promotion of racial integration among the children of the multiracial Malaysian society. But the success of Vision Schools in promoting multiculturalism depends very much on the school principals and teachers. Their understanding of the Vision School concept and the skills in drawing out strategies and action plans to implement the curriculum and instructional activities are important in realizing its aims and objectives. The competency of principal(s) in the area of policy process, change management, and human development in line with the 'Vision School' policy is crucial in creating schools that are culturally responsive. Based on the findings, some systemic policy decisions can be made with regard to developing and preparing "culturally responsive leadership " for the Vision Schools.
