The contingency approach to planning, organising, leading and control as the managerial tasks of the black high school principal

In this study the problem concerning the contingency approach to the managerial tasks of the Black high school principal
was investigated by means of literature study, interviews and observations. As a result the problems and challenges facing
the Black principal were identified.
The managerial tasks of the principal in the South Africa of the l 990's were identified and defined. It became clear that
these tasks are performed under changing situational contingencies. The contingency approach, its basis, what it entails and
its importance in the RSA of today was described. When the contingency approach was related to the managerial tasks, it
became clear that under one set of circumstances one type of leadership style is effective.
Interviews and observations were conducted in certain schools and with certain principals. Research findings revealed that
the Black high school principal should be flexible in the face of many contingencies facing him. / Educational Leadership and Management / M. Ed. (Educational Management)
