The purpose of this study is to analyse the
climate change supportive administrative services
provided by principals for effective classroom
management in public and private secondary schools in
Anambra State. The area of this study is Anambra state
and the descriptive survey research design was used.
There are six education zones namely Aguata, Awka,
Nnewi, Ogidi, Onitsha, and Otuocha education zones.
The population for this study comprised 15,990
respondents made up of 6,293 teachers in the 256
public secondary schools and 9,697 teachers in the 481
registered private secondary schools in Anambra state.
The sample size for this study is 852 teachers. The
instrument for data collection is a structured
questionnaire developed by the researchers. The
questionnaire was subjected to face validation using
three experts who are lecturers. The reliability of the
instrument was established using 100 teachers (50 in
private secondary schools and 50 in public secondary
schools) in 20 secondary schools in Enugu state.
Cronbach alpha method was used to determine
reliability of the items because the instrument is
homogeneously structured. The reliability coefficient of
the instrument was 0.74. The instrument was
administered on the respondents directly by the
researchers with the help of eight research assistants
who are teachers in the various schools sampled. All the
852 copies of the questionnaire were correctly filled and
retrieved. They were collated and subjected to statistical
analysis. Data collected were analyzed using mean
ratings to answer the research questions and t- test to
test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance.
