Implications for Secondary School Principals
Okoroma, N. S.; Robert-Okah, I.
Educational Research Quarterly, v30 n3 p4-22 2007
The school system is a green pasture for inexhaustible investigations for the purpose of enhancing academic achievement. The reason is that factors and variables within the confines of educational activities appear also to be inexhaustible. One such factor that attracted an investigation is "administrative stress" as it affects secondary school principals. This paper presents the results of a research conducted on the subject. Five hypotheses were proposed. The results revealed that inadequate funding; inadequate school facilities, work overload and poor conditions of service generated administrative stress for principals. The major implication of these results is that educational institutions should be adequately funded as other management variables will thereby be taken care of. (Contains 16 tables.)
