|Abstract: ||Effectiveness of supervision in an educational institution can not be over emphasized. This study was carried out to examine the supervisory roles of headmasters; the effectiveness of supervision in the selected schools; the academic and professional qualifications of headmasters in administration and management and to identify problems that confront headmasters in their supervisory role taking the community of Berekum as a case study. The study describes the location of Berekum, its people, their
language and occupation, income levels, religion and literacy rate. A total of one hundred and twenty four (124) respondents were used for the study. Descriptive experimental design was used or adopted by the researchers. Instruments used in obtaining data were the questionnaire and interview. The data was classified and analyzed using descriptive statistics such as frequency, tables, percentages, pie charts, and graph. It was discovered that teachers accepted supervision, saw their headmasters as helpers and consultants and preferred school-based supervision to external-based supervision.
External supervision was not strong due to constraints like mobility by supervisors to the schools. Results of the study also indicate that Headmasters had adequate knowledge and skills in supervision but they do not sometimes do post-supervision conference.|
