The drop in the school and the national pass rate calls for the supervision of teachers in the secondary school to maintain their instructional effectiveness. The research findings indicated that supervision is not being effectively implemented in the schools. Heads of schools and their heads of department complained about the heavy workloads they have to carry which do not allow them to do proper supervision. They also indicated that the majority of their teachers were untrained. The researcher recommended that the government through the Ministry of Education should deploy more trained teachers to schools. School heads should allow their experienced senior teachers to help in supervising their colleagues. The school heads are to be specifically and periodically trained on current supervisory methods if they are to supervise effectively.
