PRINCIPALS’ ADMINISTRATIVE PRACTICES AS PREDICTORS OF TEACHERS’ JOB PERFORMANCE IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN ENUGU STATE

Abstract

The study investigated principals’ administrative practices as predictors of teachers’ job performance in public secondary schools in Enugu State. Three research questions and three null hypotheses guided the study. The study adopted a correlational survey design. The population of the study comprised 8764 teachers in 268 secondary schools in Enugu State. A sample size of 605 teachers was drawn using proportionate stratified random sampling technique representing 6.9% of the population. The instruments used for data collection were Principals’ Administrative Practices Questionairre (PAPQ) and Teachers’ Job Performance Questionnaire (TJPQ). The instruments were validated and the reliability determined at 0.71, 0.83, 0.80 for principals’ administrative practices and 0.85 for teachers’ job performance. Linear regression analysis was used to answer the research questions, while t-test associated with linear regression was used to test the hypotheses at a 0.05 level of significance. The findings revealed that, there is a very high and positive predictive power of principals’ administrative practice on delegating duties to staff on teachers’ job performance in secondary schools in Enugu State. The findings equally revealed that, there is a very high and positive predictive power of principals’ administrative communication network on teachers’ job performance in secondary schools in Enugu State. The findings finally revealed that, there is a very high and positive predictive power of principals’
administrative practice of managing staff welfare on teachers’ job performance in secondary schools in Enugu State. Based on the findings of this study, the researcher recommended that, Principals should adopt the administrative practice of delegating duties to teachers for improved job performance and productivity in secondary schools in Enugu State.
