Introduction

1.1 Background of the study

Management could be defined as a social process of making use of human and non-human resources to achieve organizational goals (onifade, 2004). Management involves planning, controlling, organizing, staffing, leading, coordinating and directing the available resources (Adeleke, 2001). The central duty of management in any organization is to coordinate the efforts of people towards the achievement of the stated goals of that organization.

Management in our educational organizations, therefore, has as its basic function as the enhancement of teaching and learning. All the activities of School managers, whether working with parent-Teachers association (PTA), the professional staff or a contractor of supplies must, ultimately, contribute to this end, thus management as the component areconcerned with facilitating the accomplishment of the objectives of an organization through

The systematic management of constraint and careful utilization of the available limited resources, which include human materials, equipment, supplies, finance, space and work techniques of technology.

It is important to observe that ordinary citizens, instructional staffs including teachers and school managers each have an area of activity distributive to them. Also each level of activity must be related to the others or else there will be malfunction in the organization.

The head of School and subordinates have the administrative responsibilities of directing the available resources towards actualization of the goals. They plan the classrooms and out-of –classroom activities for teachers and students. They co-ordinate the school activities in order to ensure that many programmes go on at the same time without conflicting with others.

More precisely, managers who raise money, who set up buildings, who institute accounting procedures, who organize levies for school uniforms and many other things they do without clear reference to these activities, may forget that management is not primary but it is always instrumental.

Managerial decisions of administration are valueless unless they are geared to the implementation of organizational goals.
