AUTHOR(S): Dr. M Ramakrishna Reddy
The Principals of B.Ed. colleges, apart from looking after the administration, organization and work processes, also don the hats of instructional leader, the leader of reform and the manager of the institution. According to Drake and Roe (1986), the Principals’ major task is to provide educational leadership to improve teaching and learning process. They ensure the creation of conducive learning environment in which learners receive quality and meaningful instruction. The complexity of the role played by Principals of B.Ed. colleges is growing by day due to the increasing social complexity and also due to the higher expectations and greater demands that are being placed by the students on these colleges. As the Principal happens to be the team leader of the personnel in the college, he naturally wields an immense influence over the behavior of the members of the staff - teaching and non-teaching, their morale, job satisfaction, their self-concept, organizational climate and institutional effectiveness. The Principal of B.Ed. college must have a perception of different levels of development of the trainee teachers, their background and a consummate knowledge as to how to run and manage a B.Ed. college. Perception of B.Ed. college lecturers about their Principals’ effective functioning of their colleges plays a major role in determining the success of the Principals. The investigator has developed the Effective Functioning Rating Scale for assessing the effective functioning of principals as perceived by their B.Ed. college lecturers working in Rayalaseema Region of Andhra Pradesh.
