dc.description.abstract The study explores communication links existing in the management of primary schools in Lesotho. The frequency of the links as well as the content and channels used in the transmission of messages between the principals, advisory school committees and management committees were investigated. The Lesotho primary education management system involves the principals, advisory school committees and management committees. Management committees in Lesotho manage all primary schools under their jurisdiction. Principals manage schools on daily basis on behalf of the management committees. Advisory school committees advise the management committees on all matters relating to education. Questionnaires, interviews and school record books were the research tools used in this study. The responses revealed that links exist between the above bodies even though the links are inadequate in most instances. The way through which messages are sent vary from link to link but most of the links are in the form of meetings. These meetings are often below the stipulated number in the country's Education Act. en_US
