This study is based on a need for community involvement in farm schools to enhance effective teaching and efficient learning. The rationale behind it was to determine the current state of community involvement in farm schools in the Pietermaritzburg area, with a view to determining the extent to which the current community involvement, namely, the active participation of parents, teachers, the farmer, the church, the state and the private sector could be extended on a large scale. The study revealed that the community involvement dimension of schooling is central to the teaching profession. If neglected, no effective teaching and efficient learning can materialize. The role of the farm school principal in the realization of this goal is indispensable. The empirical survey and literature revealed that farm school "principals can address the serious shortcoming concerning the participation of community members in the affairs of farm schools.
