Education is viewed as the process of inviting truth and possibility. It is the wise, hopeful and respectful cultivation of learning undertaken in the belief that all should have the chance to share in life. Dewey, J. (1938). Learning is both a process and an outcome. As a process it is part of living in the world, part of the way our bodies work. As an outcome it is a new understanding or appreciation of something. Educational Supervision consist of all effort involving school officials directed at t providing leadership to educational workers or teachers to enhance an  improved educational system and institution. The process involves the deployment of human and material resources such as pupils, parents, teachers and other employees, the community and other officials of the state. Material resources include money, building, equipment, playgrounds etc. Besides these, the curriculum, methods and techniques of teaching also come under the scope of supervision. Educational supervision consists of the administrative functions of workers in education.
