Abstract

 The study aimed at determining the factor militating against effective instructional supervision in secondary schools in Enugu state.  Two research questions guided the study. Two null hypotheses were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance. Descriptive survey research design was used for the study. The population for the study comprised 9,529 teachers. Proportionate stratified random sampling technique was employed to sample 953 respondents. The instrument used for data collection was a 27 items structured questionnaire developed by the researcher. The instrument was validated by three experts; two experts are in the field of Educational Management and one in the Measurement and Evaluation unit of Department of Maths and Computer Education, all from Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT). The reliability of the instrument was determined using Cronbach Alpha which yielded a coefficient index of 0.71. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while t-test statistic was used to test the null hypothesis at 0.05 level of significance. The results of the study revealed, that in adequate human resources and inadequate material resources militates against the effective supervision of instruction in secondary schools in Enugu State. It was recommended among others that government and other stakeholders in education should ensure that enough material resources needed for supervision of instruction are provided. Again, some of the minor roles of the supervisors can be delegated to trained teachers so as to make out more time for instructional supervision.
