Abstract:

This study sets out to assess the effects of school principalship on quality education in the secondary school. Quality in education has become to measuring rod by which educational systems must operate. Within the context of this study quality education is limited to the quality of students’ output which could be determined by the quality of resource management by the school principal. The school principal is in charge of ensuring educational quality at all level and an educational system is not beneficial to the society when it is void of quality. This work is based on the hypothetical premise that principal’s characteristic and resource management influence quality education in secondary schools in Yaounde. The study used data collected from teachers of secondary school and simple random, quota and purposeful sampling techniques were used to obtain a sample size of 543 for teachers of government secondary schools in Yaounde. The quantitative approach was employed in data collection and analysis. In the quantitative approach, we constructed a questionnaire . Data collected was analyzed using the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS); and the following results were obtained in relation to the hypotheses of the study.
