Abstract or Introduction
This study was mainly concerned with the roles of school heads, that is, to assess how the execution of the roles of school heads affects students’ academic performance in community secondary schools. The aim was to identify administrative roles of school heads and to evaluate the supervision of the teaching process. The study therefore, was carried out to fill the gap that exists in education context especially on the roles of the schools managers and heads in relation to the students’ academic performance in secondary schools. The study will increase awareness of the problem by showing suggestions on how to improve teaching and learning in secondary schools. The study will help young academicians in the field of education by finding research gaps and conducting more researches in the field of education.
The results of the findings reported in this paper have reached the verdict that these strategies are not effective. A short recap is necessary to qualify the result reached. There were also inconsistencies in instructional supervision by the school head and uncoordinated guidance and counseling practices in the school. Although guidance and counseling was in place in the school, they were not well run due to lack of specialist teachers in the area of guidance and counseling. The recommendations of this study suggests improvements in these areas.
