The impact of technology on school administration.
The effective functioning of a school as an organization requires an effective administration.

Effective management leads to quality teaching and (Eraut, 1989). This study looks at how technology impacts on school administration. The study links the development of administrative technological support with institution effectiveness. It also investigates the way these technological resources are used in schools for administrative purposes. The study concentrates on functional aspects of school administration, that is, how the information is stored and made available, and institution effectiveness.
