dc.description.abstract In the past it has been assumed that a teacher with academic qualifications and the right sort of personality could become a principal, and that he would have assimilated the management skills of his work as he went along. The managerial function of a head is becoming more important, because: the sizes of the schools and their complexity of organization are increasing; society demands more than mere instruction of pupils; the school environment is changing; and he is required to apply modern techniques as in a business organization. These facts illustrate the necessity for specialized training as the newly appointed principal moves from his sphere of professional teaching to a new managerial calling. The contemporary views on management, namely management as decision making, management as leadership and management as a role theory are evaluated. The role theory is favoured because of its complete and comprehensive description of the managerial task of the principal. The work of managers of all types may be described according to Mintzberg in terms of ten observable roles: interpersonal roles: 1. figurehead; 2. liaison; 3. leader; information roles: 4. monitor; 5. disseminator; 6. spokesman; decisional roles: 7. entrepreneur 8. disturbance handler; 9. resource allocator and 10. negotiator. These ten roles form a clear conceptual gestalt (integrated whole). Educational Management should be approached as a specialized field of management. The educationist must decide on the extent to which data and methods, derived from Management Sciences, are applicable to education. As the demands of principalling increase it is essential for a principal to receive management training before taking up the post. en
