CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1    Background of the study
Secondary education occupies a strategic position in the national education system. It bridges the gap between the primary and tertiary levels of education in Nigeria. It absorbs the primary level and prepares them for the tertiary which is the manpower based on the nation. The secondary school is an institution established for refining human beings in terms of skills, behavior and all round of excellence.

A principal is regarded as the chief executive of a school; he is a leader and head of a secondary school. In this project we will analyze and review the roles of the principals in the management of secondary schools. It is a survey research on some selected schools in kebbi state, Nigeria.

The position of the principal in the school is so germane to the extent that the school cannot exist without that position. Realizing the important role of the principals within the secondary school system, it is important to examine the leadership capacities of the secondary school principals. This is particularly important because of the fact that secondary education, especially in Nigeria serves as the bridge between the primary and tertiary level, although the junior secondary school (JSS) level in particular now is the integral part of the basic education (UBE) program in Nigeria. The (U.B.E) is free, compulsory and universal. Principal competencies can be measured from the various dimensions from the perception of students, parent, communities and their employers. For instance Scott, Jr and William (1987) agreed that, teacher’s perception of their principal’s leadership behavior is also related to teacher’s morale...
