The role of the principal in restoring the culture of teaching and learning : an instructional management perspective

One of the challenges facing the education system in South Africa is a lack of the culture

of teaching and learning. It is this challenge that prompted this research. The research
investigated how the principaL as an instructional leader, can restore the culture of teaching
and learning in previously disadvantaged schools. A qualitative approach was used and three schools
were selected in the Sambandou Circuit of the Northern Province.

The research results showed that there are general and management factors that
contribute to a lack of the culture of teaching and learning. Management factors include, amongst
others, lack of staff development programmes and discipline. The general factors, on the
other hand, include amongst others, poor physical conditions and infrastructure in schools.
In conclusion, the research recommended, amongst others, that principals conduct staff development
programmes and supervise the work of educators and learners / Educational Leadership and Management / M. Ed. (Education Management)
