Egwu, Sarah Oben
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n19 p64-70 2015
This study was conducted to determine principals' performance in promoting learning climate in Ebonyi State secondary schools. A sample of 630 teachers completed a 12-item questionnaire designed for the study. Out of 630 copies of the questionnaire distributed, 606 copies representing about 96.2% return rate were properly completed and returned. Data were analyzed using means, standard deviations and t-test statistic. The results of the study showed that principals' performance in promoting learning climate in Ebonyi State secondary schools was effective. It was also found that there was a significant difference in the mean rating of teachers in most of the functions of principals in promoting learning climate in urban and rural secondary schools in Ebonyi State. However, there was no significant difference in the mean rating of male and female teachers in most of the functions of principals in promoting learning climate in urban and rural secondary schools in Ebonyi State. On the basis of the findings of this study, it was recommended that there should be constant appraisals of principals' performance in promoting learning climate in secondary schools. This might motivate them to initiate programmes that could improve teaching and learning in school.
