|Abstract:||This paper examined the demographic variables and principals’ administrative effectiveness in public secondary schools in the south senatorial district of Edo State. A descriptive survey was adopted for the study. The study population comprised of principals and teachers from 61 secondary schools in the south senatorial district of Edo State. A sample size of 61 principals from both senior and junior public secondary schools and 416 teachers from two Local Government Areas (i.e. Oredo and Ikpoba-Okha) were used. The sample size was drawn through stratified random sampling technique. Three hypotheses guided the study. A validated likert type research instrument tagged “Principals Administrative Effectiveness Questionnaire” (PAEQ) was used to elicit responses from the sampled secondary schools teachers. Data collected were analyzed using independent t-test and ANOVA, because it has three independent variables at 0.05 level of significance. Findings revealed that secondary school principals were highly effective in their administration of their schools. Years of experience influenced principals’ effective administration whereas gender did not. It wasrecommended that the Post Primary School Board should place high emphasis on years of experience in the appointment and posting of principals to schools and that gender should be de-emphasized.|
