Abstract:The new educational system in Nigeria demands new methods and standards of performance on the part of principals, teachers and students. This study investigates the instructional leadership performance of secondary school principals in Rivers State, using the perceptions of teachers. Of the 256 principals in the Rivers State secondary school system, 57 were selected to constitute the sample of the study. The ratings of a total of 290 (out of 3,688) teachers were used to evaluate the principals' instructional management performance. The results show the teachers' ratings of the principals' performance to be high. Furthermore, there is no significant difference in instructional programme management ratings between male and female principals. However, a significant difference exists between democratic and nondemocratic principals, with undemocratic principals being rated more highly than principals who exhibit a democratic leadership style in overall instructional programme management.
