|dc.description.abstract||In most African countries, the responsibility for overseeing the management of schools is
entrusted to a school Board of Governors or a Management Committee. In order to
ensure that governing Boards operate on some common .principles, every Board has a
constitution which provides basic guidelines and the legal framework for its operation.
The constitution is usually approved by the Minister for Education and it provides the
blue print for a Board's operation as a large entity. The constitution of a Board of
Governors usually derives its powers from an Education Act or similar legislation. In
Kenya, the Education Act was passed in Parliament in 1968 to govern all matters
pertaining to education in Kenya. In part II section 6(b), 10, 11 and 12 it stipulates the
composition and responsibilities of Board of Governors in the management of schools in
However, the Board of Governors have remained quite insignificant in the management
of most public day secondary schools. To this end, the purpose of this study is to find out
management problems confronting Boards of Governors in Day Secondary Schools in a
bid to find ways for the improvement of such schools. The study will be based on the
public day schools in Kandara Division of Maragua District in Central Province. The
study will adopt a descriptive survey design of public secondary schools in Kandara
Division, Maragua District, Central Province, Kenya. The random sampling technique
will be used to select 4 out of 16 schools in urban areas and 6 out of 24 in rural areas.
The questionnaire and interview schedule will be used as instruments of data collection.
The questionnaire will be pre-tested to a selected sample similar to the actual to be used
in the study.
The researcher will personally collect data from the field and thereafter use basic
descriptive statistics to analyse the data.
The study may help policy makers understand the existing challenge of management of
the day secondary schools.||en_US
