It practice invariably involved the student in decision-making leading to improvement in students acheivement. he following recommendations were made: its practice should be improved upon to further enhace improved students performance, more schools should use it and all stakeholders should be invloved in school management, and seminars on its improtance should be held regularly for all stakeholders in the sector to make its practice more effective and thus further improve student achievement.
