Improving Secondary Schools Management through Transformational Leadership Approach and Management Information Systems

Nnenna Ngozi Benwari, Boma Isabella Dambo


This paper examines the transformational leadership model and schools management information system (SMIS) as two change agents that can be applied to bring about improvement in the management of secondary schools in Nigeria. Transformational leadership applies certain principles such as personal autonomy of teachers and other staff, opportunities for leadership, communication, maximizing organizational outcomes which are also emphasized by a SMIS. Thus a SMIS needs to be driven by a transformational (visionary) leader leading to greater effectiveness and efficiency in secondary schools management in Nigeria. Recommendations are also made including retraining in leadership skills of school managers and providing necessary information and communications technologies.
