University of Education, Winneba (GHANA)
This study was conducted in ten (10) selected Junior High Schools in the Shama District in the Western Region of Ghana. It sought to find out the extent to which teachers were involved in school decision-making process. Questionnaires and interview guides were used to collect data from head teachers and teachers. A total of one hundred and ten (110) respondents participated in the study. Data obtained were presented with the help of frequency counts, weighted means and standard deviations.

The study revealed that teacher participation in school decision-making was obstructed by poor communication system in the school, directive leadership style of head teachers, poor human relations between and among school personnel, leading to poor teacher and learning outcomes.

The study recommends that social relations in the school must be informed by a high level of professionalism, objectivity, transparency and diplomacy. School decision making must be grounded on consensus building, shared leadership and shared accountability.
