THE IMPACT OF SCHOOL-BASED MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE INVOLVEMENT IN THE DEVELOPMENT PLAN AND FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT OF SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN AWKA EDUCATION ZONE

Abstract

The main purpose of the paper was to determine the extent of involvement of School-Based Management Committee in the development plan and financial management of secondary schools in Awka Education Zone. Two research questions guided the study and two hypotheses were tested. The descriptive research design was utilized for the study. The population of the study comprised 793 members of the SBMCs in the 61 public (state government owned) secondary schools in the zone. Through simple random sampling, 30% of the population was sampled. This amounted to 237 SBMC members comprising 73 internal members and 164 external members. Out of the 237 copies of the questionnaire administered, 211 were properly filled and successfully retrieved. This was made up of 68 for internal members and 143 for external members. The data collected for the study were analysed using mean, standard deviations and the t-test. The mean value was used to answer the research questions while the standard was used to determine the homogeneity in the respondents mean responses. The t-test was used to test the hypotheses at the 0.05 level of significance. Findings revealed that SMBCs in Awka Education Zone of Anambra State were involved in the financial management of secondary schools to a low extent. Findings also revealed that SMBCs were involved in the financial management of secondary schools to a low extent. Furthermore, it was also revealed that there is no significant difference in the mean ratings of internal members of SBMC and the external members of SBMCs on the extent of their involvement in developing the school plan and financial management of secondary schools. Based on these findings, the following recommendations were made among others, that, government should through the Post Primary Schools Service Commission (PPSSC) organize training programmes like conferences, seminars and workshop for members of SBMC to further educate them on the need for their involvement in the Development Plan of their Schools. It was also recommended that the Post Primary School Service Commission should always demand for reports of the financial activities of secondary schools.
