Abstract: The study looked at the effectiveness of supervision in basic schools in the Obuasi municipality. It was found out that the two main forms of supervision namely internal and external are both practiced there and both need to be made effective as there are a number of challenges. The current state of supervision reveals that follow up visits, brief visits and intensive visits were being done well. Some factors affecting supervision on the negative side included the need to involve teachers in the decision making process, maintaining good human relations, establishing mutual trust, maintaining discipline, ensuring respect among teachers, organizing of InService Training (INSET), motivation of teachers and the improvement of communications skills. Challenges confronting supervision were found to include the fact that some teachers and pupils become tensed up when they see the presence of a supervisor whether head teacher or circuit supervisor. The report concludes with suggestions and recommendations to improve supervision in schools to make them more effective.
