dc.description.abstract The objective to undertake this study determines whether and to what extent the parent component of the School Governing Body plays a role in decision-making in schools. The study conducted in Umzumbe Circuit schools, under the Port-Shepstone District in the Pietermaritzburg region of KwaZulu Natal Province. The research brings to the fore a distinction and overlap between governance and decision-making. It highlights the nature and importance of the involvement of the parent component in decision-making on school issues. The study demonstrates that school governance and decision-making entail the application of conceptual, technical and human relation skills. Based on findings emanating from the analysis and interpretation of data from the respondents, the study concludes that, ■* Some school principals do not effectively implement the directives portrayed in policy documents of the Department of Education. This situation hinders the participation of some parents in decision-making in schools; • Many parents do not have the necessary knowledge • about school governance in general and lack the necessary expertise required to enable them to participate effectively in decision-making on school issues; From the conclusions made, the study makes recommendations directed to school principals, schools, SGBs and district officials, SGBs and the Department of Education. en_US
