Leadership as the key priority in the educational system
According to Akumah in Rober and Myers (1954), he tried to differentiate management skills and role from that of leadership. He stated thus:
Whereas management is intent on outing the works and keeping the plant going, leadership guide direction and propose. People follow leaders-they do not follow managers.
The foregoing statement tries to explain key functions of leadership which plays important role in the educational system. Hence, cannot be done without. This leadership station as established in order of importance in the educational system taken precedence over all other educational administrative system.
This as a matter of fact is simply the vision, skills, and leadership capabilities that top officials to posses to build and maintain an effective educational system.
Leadership qualities are used to attract talented teachers and create educational programs that can provide scholars with a superior academic environment. This leadership shill which is said to play key roles in educational system includes.
This is one of the most useful tools in creating a forward-looking, student-centered school environment. These are those actions that a principle takes, or delegates to others, to promote growth in student learning.
According to Douglas (2001) the result of instructional leadership is not confirmed to the classroom and is the objective of all educators.
2. Management skills
Educational leadership as a key priority is in many ways the ability to understand the balance that is needed in a school. For an educational system to be successful, it includes the management skills of the leaders which includes the use of fact, striking of efficiency, ordination of available resources as postulated by Akumah (2008)
3. Community Building
As the role of educational leader widens, so does the need for those leaders to build relationship with people inside, and the school’s internal network.
