The Administrative theory developed by Henri Fayol is among the notable classical theoretical frameworks of
management in social organizations including schools. This study pursued an understanding of the utility of Henri
Fayol’s 14 principles of administration among managers of secondary schools in Tanzania focusing on the nature of
leadership and the perceived significance of the principles on daily management processes among school managers. A
cross-sectional survey was adopted to collect data using questionnaires from 68 school managers across 32 secondary
schools in three regions of Tanzania Mainland. The data collected were analyzed using Statistical Package for Social
Sciences. The findings revealed that a relatively large number of school managers have had leadership experience, but
many are still juniors with stumpy leadership in-service training. Further, the division of labour was identified to be of
critical importance in the administration process in secondary schools. In addition, School Managers perceived
structural principles as most important followed by process principles, and purpose principles. The study concludes that
the structure of schools’ administration is indispensable for successful implementation of the purported objectives and
goals of school organization.
