MANAGEMENT OF FUNDS FOR SCHOOL EFFECTIVENESS

ABSTRACT

This research investigated the management of school funds for school effectiveness in Ifako-Ijaiye local government area of Lagos state. Three research questions and three null hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. A 24 item researcher developed questionnaire was administered and retrieved from 141 teachers, 15 principals, and 15 bursars selected through proportionate stratified random sampling technique from the local education district in Ifako-Ijaiye local government area of Lagos-state was used to find out how secondary school principals manage school funds for school effectiveness. Descriptive  statistics and a one-way ANOVA were employed for data analysis. Results of the study showed that issuing receipts for all monies collected  from parents, students etc, involving sectional and departmental heads in budget preparation; rendering financial reports to the Post-primary school management board, among others, are ways principals in Ifako-Ijaiye local government area manage school funds. The state government and owners of private schools (proprietors/proprietress) should provide secondary schools with appropriate money “safe” or open a good bank account for the school where the school funds can be properly kept. 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background to the Study

The term “management” can be defined as the process of organizing, planning, leading, measuring and controlling as well as undertaking of risks and handling of uncertainly, planning and innovation; co-ordination and routine supervision (Aghenta, 2000). It is a process designed to ensure the co-operation, participation intervention and involvement of people in the effective achievement of a given objective (Fabunmi, 2000). It is also a social process concerned with identifying, maintaining, motivation, controlling and unifying formally and information organized human and material resources (with a system (Musaazi, 1982). In such a social process, there is always a structural hierarchy comprising the subordinates and Super-ordinates.  

Management of funds therefore deals with the provision, custody and disbursement of the financial resources needed for the running of public, private or government established schools.

Management of funds in educational organization like secondary schools have been a very sensitive and controversial issue because it exposes the strengths and weakness of those entrusted to manage the fund. The National Policy on Education (FRN, 2004) acknowledges education as a vehicle for national development. The achievement of educational goals of any nation depends largely on adequate financial support. The funding and prudent management of scarce resources in secondary schools are crucial issues, which should be handled with all amount of seriousness. The principal of secondary school is therefore the fundamental person upon whom the resource utilization of the school organization depends.

        Effective and accurate financial management is necessary in the school institution to avoid financial mismanagement. In a place where the principal is weak and ineffective in managing the resources of the school, success will be very difficult to achieve. Financial management is one of the tasks of the school principals. Ezeocha (1990) stated that “whether a school principal has a bursar or not he has the duty of seeing that adequate financial provision is made in the school budget. He also noted that effective management demands that budget proposals be prepared before any new session. Ozigi (1981) stated that the greatest problem militating and facing the educational institutions is the inappropriate management of funds.

        The principals of secondary schools have major roles to play in the financial management and administration of the schools they are heading and controlling. Some critics have argued that the introduction of illegal levies by school principals brings untold hardship to many parents leading to decline in students’ population. This, by implication, affects the achievements of educational objectives as outlined in the national policy on education.

In recent times, some principals of secondary schools have been accused of embezzlement of school funds, imposing unauthorized levies, diverting of school funds for private use, abandonment of vital projects in pretence that they lack funds.

Statement of the Problems

Occasionally secondary school principals have been mostly accused for poor land inefficient management of funds in their schools. There has been several report over the radio of charges and counter charges against some principals regarding over-spending inflating figures, collusion with school bursar, accusations of diversion of funds; misappropriation and imposition of unauthorized levies, lacking proper accounting skills and not generating enough funds (money) in their schools . Ogbonnaya (2000) observed that poor management of funds in secondary schools has created a lot of lapses, which have affected the achievement of the desired educational goals. The principals on their own part blame the government for poor funding of secondary schools, inadequate supply of capital equipment and instructional materials, among others. One of the greatest problems facing the growth and running of the secondary schools in Lagos state is the inappropriate and mismanagement of the school funds.
