ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the need for restructuring the principalship for their effective role in school improvement and other educational objectives. According to a study, the principal still exists primarily as a building manager who is simply not encouraged to reflect on instructional matters. Principals in many cases lacks a meaningful grasp of the academic concerns that matter most. Principals should effectively participate to ensure academic growth by successful implementation of effective teaching tools like taking students' and teachers' feedback, interaction, and encouraging teachers participation in educational improvement. The chief responsibility for the principals in today's era is sustaining a sense of vision and a desire for constant improvement and will demand a spirited leadership quality, considerable time and intellectual energy.
