It is recommended that the Tanzanian government should lay down a policy on managerial skills training for the newly appointed and continuing heads of schools as this will enhance effective school management, hence better attainment of school goals and objectives. The government should consider providing leadership training through workshops and seminars to managerial teams in schools. This will enhance effective school management in schools.
