Teachers play a major role in schools both academically and by participating in school administration for ensuring quality education for students. The present investigation was undertaken to study the participation of secondary grade teachers in school administration. The researcher selected 100 teachers teaching in government, government aided and private schools of Thanjavur district of Tamil Nadu. A standardized tool (Teacher's Participation in School Administration Scale-TPSAS) was used in the study. To know the participation of secondary grade teachers in school administration, data were collected and Mean and SD were worked out. 't' test was applied to find out significant difference between variables and also used F test, to find out where the difference exists among the groups. This study reveals that the secondary grade teachers have more participation in school administration. The Teachers who take part in school administration are encouraged to avail other benefits in schools. The study also shows that teachers who are doing administrative tasks make them more involved in the quality of education resulting in an enhanced level of students academic performance.
