Universal Basic Education in Nigeria: Availability of Schools' Infrastructure for Effective Program Implementation
Ikoya, Peter O.; Onoyase, D.
Educational Studies, v34 n1 p11-24 Feb 2008
This paper examines the availability and adequacy of schools' infrastructural facilities for implementation of the Universal Basic Education program in Nigeria. Adopting the "ex post facto" design, the researchers used existing school data on physical facilities, including a survey of key stakeholders in the education sector. Data analysed revealed inadequacy of physical facilities for effective implementation of the UBE program. It was accordingly recommended that government at the national, state and local levels show better commitment to the implementation of the Universal Basic Education program. (Contains 3 figures and 4 tables.)
