The study was designed to determine the relationship between head teachers of secondary schools’ level of morality with their age and administrative experience. Data were collected from 200 head teachers of secondary schools selected as sample of the study from Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces of Pakistan. Kohlberg’s Form A of MJI -Moral Judgment Interviews- was used as an instrument for data collection. Standard Issue Scoring Manual was used to determine head teachers’ GS Scores and Weighted Average Scores (WAS). It was concluded that there was significant negative relationship between moral reasoning and age of head teachers of secondary schools. It means the younger head teachers secured the better stage of moral reasoning as compare to male heads. However, no relationship was detected between moral reasoning stage and administrative experience.
