This study investigated the role of the principal in managing teaching and learning. It examined how and to whom principals distributed the management of teaching and learning. It was found that participants thought principals could improve school effectiveness most by engaging in activities that develop a good climate and ensure appropriate resources are available for instruction. There is a growing understanding that leadership is embedded in various organizational contexts within school communities, not centrally vested in a person or an office. This study has left the researcher with a great respect for the all encompassing role of the principal.
