|Abstract: ||This study was undertaken to assess the level
of effectiveness of senior secondary school principals
in Ethiopia as they predispose their influence over
their staff both in task performance and group
satisfaction (morale) activities. The analysis was
based on the application of Halpin's 'Behavioral'
c A rigorous statistical procedure was employed
on the data derived basically from the perceptual
ratings of the three independent groups that bear a
direct impact on the principa19 leadership role.
the outcome of the data analysis revealed that, fewer
principals were on the 'transitional style' with the
largest proportion emphasizing a consideration behavior
perhaps affecting school effectiveness.
On the whole, the findings showed that factors
significant of school leadership are centered around
student enrollment size, staff motivation, principals'
management training, and the attitudes of the work
groups towards the power of the principal.
It was thus suggested that to improve the leadership
capacity of principals the present status of schools
with respect to ever increasing enrollement, lower
staff morale, and bottlenecks in finance and facilities
must be tackled adequatel1 before individual principal's
excellence and effectiveness can be realized.|
