Record Management in Nigerian Secondary School Administration
Nakpodia, E. D.
Online Submission
This paper examined the usefulness of record management in Nigerian Secondary Schools. Record keeping is one of the administrative principles in secondary school administration and it cannot be overemphasized in any organisation. The continuity of any school organisation depends on availability of useful records of past activities. In a complex organisation like the schools, it is not possible to keep every information in the brain because the volume of information is heavy. Therefore, records must be kept. Accurate information of all the activities going on in schools are kept for effective decision making and if they are well documented, the decision-making process is further made easier. This paper therefore addressed the following areas: the concept of record management, purpose and benefits of records management, qualities of a good school record-keeping; types of records kept in schools; problems facing records management in schools; and strategies for effective record managements in Nigerian Schools.
