The quality and survival of an organisation (i.e. school) is determined by the quality and performance of its manager (i.e. Head of school). The management proceeding is the instrument of the undertaking which can make sources and resources productive. The Head of the school is in charge of human activities and he must see to it that all resources are utilised as effectively as possible to fulfil particular needs and to endeavour to reach specific goals. The improvement of the quality of education remains therefore the main object of educational management. The Head of the school is however not the only person who has a managing role to perform in school. To manage a school effectively, the head is assisted by Deputy Heads and Heads of Departments who all have to be developed in management. Deputy Heads and Heads of Department have a clearly defined tuition task as well as a management task to fulfil. Although tuition and management are two distinct activities which function independently this goal is the realisation of effective education. Yet each in a distinctive manner. Various methods of management development in as well as outside the school can be employed to develop educational leaders in management. The management of d school should not only plan and initiate and then stand on the touch line as observers, they must get involved dynamically 1n every action which is conductive. A model is used as a representation of a management development scheme, in reduced form. By way of a diagram an attempt is made to represent a simplified management development program for educational leaders in the primary school.
