Philosophers had it that tomorrow success depends on today performance thus a
day well lived makes every tomorrow a time of hope. Furthermore, a review of
government intention on establishing public secondary school is well reveals
that it is the intention of federal state education a common social good

school in Esan West local government area of Edo state and the ascertain the
extent to which this is being achieved in order to make fully the potentials of
the contribution of public secondary schools in the achievement of the objective
of the national policy on education, all other agencies will operate hand in
hand with government secondary schools to that end. According to Farrant (1980)
say that management has to do with the control of resources and process in a
production operation. Good management requires that the resources are used in
the most effective’s way and that a high quality of product is maintained
According to Nwankwo (1987) say that management is the careful and
systematic arrangement and use of resources, (human and materials) situation
and opportunities for the achievement of the specific objective of a given
organization e.g. educational organization. Whawo (1993) defined education
management as the process of mobilizing human and materials resources within a
school for effective teaching and leaving so the goals of establishing the
school may be dently realized. In more specific terms, management or education
management in the careful and systematic harnessing of education resources and
as human, materials, time, curriculum and finance for the effective implication
of academic plans within a school system and for the actualization of goals for
examples the classroom management because the teacher is in position to guide
direct, control., organism plan the students, coordinates all activities in the
classroom including the human and non-human resources effectively and
efficiently towards the expected goals.
It shows that their goals are not achieved by the public secondary
school in Esan West Local Government Area to teachers failure to perform their
duties as classroom managers. According to Farrant (1980) say that the teacher
as manager ought to be able to indicate wherever the process is not working
efficiently or is in danger of breaking down. He must know how to correct
whatever is going wrong without disturbing more than the part immediately
involved with experience he will team to anticipate trouble and take
appropriate action to prevent it. Effective management calls upon a number of
skills, some of them are technical while others relate to prevent relation. The
principals and teacher need to develop them all and know how and when to apply
them. Such skills are;
1.Planning the programme of learning and teaching
2.Decision making concerning resources teaching
3.Coordinating learning in the classroom with
learning from other sources.
4.Organizing routine matter and pupils students
According to Olaitan (1985) says that any achievement that desires
a national objective required teacher of right capability this is because the
teacher are the hub ground which all education activities involve.

training teaching personnel to guide the concert in their learning activities.
The consequences of staffing the school with untrained teachers have caused
more harm than good, specific in public schools in Esan West LGA. This equally

concentration is on ragout on the schools programme under the program of
studies, the inspector looked into the qualification, capabilities of teaching
personnel scheme and record of work in each subject work coverage internal and
external examination papers, other aspects looked into are physical facilities
