Arubayi, Eric A.
Conducted in Bendel State in Nigeria, this study investigated the problem-solving behavior of secondary school principals. Specifically, it attempted to assess how good the principals of Bendel State were at solving problems and whether problem-solving success was related to principal experience or age or to size of staff and student populations. Questionnaires were sent to 80 randomly selected principals in Bendel State, 55 of whom responded. The l6 questionnaire items concerned the awareness, evaluation, and action stages of problem solving. Findings indicated that the respondents are good problem solvers. Principal age and size of staff population were not correlated with problem-solving ability. Principal experience and size of student body were correlated with the ability to solve problems.
