Structured questionnaires were administered to respondents to collect primary data which the researcher relied on for this study. The studys population was derived from schools in Bahati sub-county. A census was conducted of all the 31 principals of the public secondary schools in the area. Data collected was analyzed with statistical package for social sciences. Descriptive statistics; proportions; percentages and measures of central tendencies; were used to analyze the data. Pearson correlation coefficient was used to establish the relationship between the independent variable and dependent variable.
