ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the responsibilities of a secondary school principal. The principal should make every effort to encourage teachers to experiment with new techniques of learning which would enhance the cordial relationship between pupil and teacher, for the development of the student's abilities. The principal would require from his students a full detailed report of their goals, their likes and dislikes, their favorite teachers, their favorite subjects, their ambitions, their responsibilities at home, their handicaps and their attitude toward school.
