Abstract

In the global landscape of education, the paramount importance of quality teaching for effective and efficient learning in schools is widely acknowledged. The deliberate establishment of schools underscores the significance of their role in fostering an environment conducive to successful education outcomes. School managers and administrators bear the responsibility of ensuring quality teaching and learning to achieve the intended educational goals. Essential to this process is the influence of both human and material resources allocated to schools, as highlighted by Armstrong (2006). This research seeks to explore the intricate dynamics surrounding the relationship between resource allocation, leadership quality, and their combined impact on the provision of quality teaching and learning in schools, with a particular focus on the context of Sub-Saharan Africa. Despite the recognized role of resources in educational quality, extant literature reveals a concerning gap—many schools in the Sub-Saharan African region lack the requisite quality leaders necessary to ensure the delivery of high-caliber teaching and learning experiences (Adeyemi and Bolarinwa, 2013; Oino and Asghar, 2018). The study employs a multi-dimensional approach, combining qualitative and quantitative methods, to investigate the challenges and potential solutions in enhancing educational leadership within Sub-Saharan African schools. By scrutinizing the existing literature and conducting empirical analyses, this research aims to delineate the specific leadership qualities that contribute to effective resource utilization and subsequently impact the quality of teaching and learning in educational institutions. The findings of this study are expected to provide valuable insights for policymakers, educational administrators, and stakeholders in addressing the critical need for quality leadership within Sub-Saharan African schools. As the quest for educational excellence continues, understanding the nexus between leadership, resource allocation, and teaching quality is imperative for shaping informed policies and strategies aimed at uplifting the educational standards in the region.
