This study sought to find out the extent to which schools’ Boards of Management (BoMs) role of facilitatingprovision of quality education predicts their overall effectiveness in management of public primary schools in Nandi South Sub-county, Kenya. One research question and its corresponding hypothesis were formulated. Thestudy sample comprised 108 out of the 145 BoM teacher representatives in the 145 public primary schools in Nandi South Sub-county who were selected through simple random sampling. Data were collected using a Teachers’ Questionnaire (TQ). The validity and reliability of the questionnaire were assessed based on data from a pilot study that involved 11primary schools in the neighboring Nandi Central Sub-county. Reliability was based on the internal consistency technique where a Cronbach alpha coefficient of .717 was obtained. The Hypothesis was tested at an alpha level of .05 using simple regression analyses. Resultsshowed a positive and significant correlation (?1=.852, p=.000). The study therefore concluded that facilitating provision of quality education by BoMssignificantly predicts theiroverall effectiveness in management of public primary schools and recommended that BoMsshould put more emphasis in facilitating schools to provide quality education which will in turn impact on their effectiveness in schools’ management.
