ABSTRACT
This study investigated administratorsí resource management practices and teachersí job performance in secondary schools in Eket Education Zone of Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. The population comprised 659 teachers and a sample of 249 teachers selected through the stratified random sampling technique. The study adopted correlational research design. Administratorís Resource Management Practices and Secondary School Teachers Job Performance (ARMPSSTJP) was the instrument used for data collection. It was validated by experts in Measurement and Evaluation in University of Calabar. The internal consistency of Section B instrument was determined using Cronbach Alpha method and a reliability index of 0.76 was obtained. Data collected were analysed using Pearson Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) at 0.05 level of significance. The study revealed that administratorsí resource management practices were significantly related to teachersí job performance. Based on the findings, conclusion was derived and some recommendations were made that recruitment of teachers should not be based on political affiliation rather selection of teachers should be on merit. Regular in-service training is needed for teachers to enhance high performance in the classroom and the principal as the school administrator should be exposed to regular seminars and workshops on school resource management, among other things.
