The SBM sub-components
Why should we implement SBM? *develop a management system to ensure the quality of learning *Government aims to devolve more responsibilities of the school and provides them with greater autonomy and flexibility *school should develop its own characteristics, seek self-improvement and pursue excellence
Principles of SBM
Problems may be encountered *More work of stakeholders *Less efficiency *Increase of staff performance *Lack of knowledge by stakeholders of what SBM *Teachers time involvement *Lack of decision making skills
Stakeholders Responsibilities *Facilitate *Teachers empowerment and accountability *Involvement of Parents
Advantages of SBM
Allow competent individuals in the schools to make decisions that will improve learning
Give the entire school community a voice in key decisions.
Lead to greater creativity in the design of programs.
Redirect resources to support the goals developed in each schools.
Lead to realistic budgeting as parents and teachers become more aware of schools financial status, spending limitations and the cost of its programs.
Improve morale of teachers and nurture new leadership at all levels.
Disadvantages of SBM
Participatory decision-making sometimes creates frustration and is often slower than more autocratic methods
This leaves principals and teachers less time to devote to other aspects of their job.
Teachers and community members who participate in the councils may need training in the budget matters, some teachers may not be interested in the budget process or want to devote time to it.
SBM must have the strong support of school staff.
SBM is more successful if it is implemented gradually. It may take 5 years or more to implement SBM
School and district staff must be given administrative training, but also must learn how to adjust to new roles and channels of communication.
Financial support must be provided to make training and time for regular staff meetings available.
Central office administrators must transfer authority to principals, and principals in turn must share this authority with teachers and parents.
Through the SBM, schools have more autonomy and assume greater responsibility to develop an environment that facilitates continuous greater improvement and put in place and put in a place a self evaluation mechanism to assure the quality of learning and teaching. The ultimate aim of SBM is to improve the standards of teaching and student’s learning outcomes through the concerted efforts of the key stakeholders, the leadership and commitment of frontline educators and the support of the government.
