Ikgbusi, Njideka Gloria, Iheanacho, Rowland Chima


The study was embarked upon with a view to finding out some of the hitches influencing effective administration of secondary schools in some selected zones of Anambra state namely: Aguata, Onitsha and Otuocha. The population which is also the same size consists of 110 secondary school principals. A self-administered questionnaire which has eight research questions and twenty-four questionnaire items guided the study. The data was analysed through the use of frequency counts and simple percentages. The study revealed among others that many schools are understaffed and are still facing inadequate subject teachers, in other words, most principals are forced to teach some classes in addition to their official work of administration. On the strength of the findings, some recommendations were made among which are the provision of adequate and qualified teachers for effective teaching and learning; the principals should be released from classes so that they can fully concentrate on administration of their schools.
