Aloysius Okon Umosen, Patricia Ogon


The study investigated the influence of school partnerships on principals’ administrative effectiveness in secondary schools in the Ibesikpo-Asutan Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. The study adopted an ex-post facto research design. The target population comprised all the principals, vice-principals, and teachers, totaling 328. The sample of the study consisted of 176 respondents, comprising seven principals, 14 vice- principals and 155 teachers representing, 50% of the teachers in each of the schools. Researchers developed an instrument titled: School Partnerships and Principals Administrative Effectiveness Questionnaire (SPPAEQ) with a reliability coefficient of 0.83 that was used for data collection. The data collected were analyzed using simple linear regression. The null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The results revealed that partnerships with religious organizations and host communities have a significant influence on principals’ administrative effectiveness. It was recommended, among other things, that the principals of secondary schools should nurture good relations with the host communities. These include but not limited to contributions to social and cultural activities, educational counseling services, and other fruitful exchanges between the school and the host community. For instance, industrial engagements in training and education should be pursued by principals in the host communities.
