secondary schools performed 55 managerial practices was evaluated by 275 teachers.
The data obtained through questionnaire was tested using t-test, ANOVA and multiple

plant administration, record keeping, and special services or to those which required reflective
planning; (2) teachers and principals significantly differed in the evaluation of the principals'
performance on 37 of the 55 practices included in the study, (3) both groups gave a higher rating
to the controlling function than to the directing, organizing and planning, (4) principals of large and
small secondary schools varied sgnificantly in their performance of all of the management functions
except in planning, (5) length of service in principalship is not found to bear sgnificant relation to
