INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

          The principal of a school is both the teachers and administrator of the school. Edem (1998) described the principal as a leader who is endowed with authority to influence the activities, behaviour, beliefs, and feelings of his staff and students and who expects their willing co-operation. The principal ensure that the school is life to it responsibilities. This is why Ozigi (1997) opined that the school work revolves around the administrator, the school reputation depends on him, and he can make or spoil the school because the school projects are his own image. There in no doubt that the principal occupy prime position in the school system. The position of the principal also demand that the occupier must possess good qualities which among other things include dedication to duty visionary, honesty, emerge tic, mental alertness, understanding and intelligent.

          In our secondary school system, many principals do not possess these stalling qualities either because they were not well trained or were appointed due to situational problem which are sometimes presented as “Nigerian factor.” This factor explains why one school performs extraordinary better than the other in major school activities. It is on this note that Griffith (2000) opined that school administrators by virtue of their positions are leaders and the quality of their leadership determine.

          Some people are of the opinion that principals lack the ability to work towards the achievement of the stated goals of education of their school level and this has been attributed to the cause of the decline in the standard of education a speculated by various mass media. Many studies have show that the implementation of major school policies and programmes depend largely on the principal’s administrative capabilities and other factors which study intends to undo.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM 

           Parent and various mass media within and outside Nigeria have complained severally about the gradual decline in standard of education in the country as a whole and Edo State in particular. Hey attribute the ugly and   scenario to indiscipline among teachers and students, government insensitivity, incompetent. School heads, negligence to duty on part of parents and teachers, inadequate funds, personnel, school facilities and infrastructure etc. it is on the strength of these speculation that this research project sought to find out the problems facing administration of secondary school in Esan North East Local Government Area of Edo State. To a large extent their success or failure, principal perform both administrative and supervisory duties in their schools and because of their strategic duties, they face numerous problem. Ezeocha (1992) identified examination malpractice, dropout from schools immorality and general fall in the standard of education as problem surrounding school head in their administrative leadership roles. He also reported that lack of effective leadership coordination and control, structural organizational inadequacies including over centralization of authority as problem facing the Nigeria educational system. A situation where he principal must approach the school board or ministry of education for most school of the school need undermines his initiative and creativity, it also causes the principal to move away from his school most of the time there by giving room for beak-down of major school activities.

          Principals are also not given free hand to use their school finances to run the schools. This account for why must secondary school needs is never met.

          Observed that school leader do not make policy statements, by which decision and other administrative action can be taken promptly in the secondary school system.

          It is the principal that translate the education policies, laws and regulations into practical realities. Unfortunately most of them are incompetent because they were in the position as a result of years of experience without requisite professional training.
