PROJECT TOPIC- FACTORS INFLUENCING THE PROGRESS OF SECONDARY EDUCATION IN OHAOZARA LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF EBONYI STATE

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background to the Study

Education can be regarded as the key that unlocks the development of personal and national potential and all other kinds of rights and powers in the world. The increasing awareness of the importance of education for sustainable development in Africa is paramount. Nigeria as a nation strives toward the provision of quality and affordable education for its citizens through the guiding principle of National Policy on Education (2013). The guiding principles of education in Nigeria is the equipping of every citizens with acquisition of knowledge, desirable skills, attitude and values, as well as to enable him or her to derive maximum benefits from his or her society and also contribute his quota meaningfully towards the development of the nation at large. Secondary school education is one among the levels of education in Nigeria.

On attaining Independence as a nation in 1960, what seemed a major concern to most Nigerian leaders then was how education would be accessible to all citizens of the newly created nation.  Education was seen as the necessary instrument immediately and essentially for the consolidation of the independence, for securing the new nation against neo-colonialism and for making workable, the newly established self-government in a multi-ethnic society (Olaniyi, 2012).

The desire to use education for nation building was (and is still) very compelling and so much was the faith in education that the schools of the nation were not only meant for political socialization, but also for other social functions and for economic growth.  To achieve these goals, Universal Primary Education (UPE) was introduced nationwide in 1976, although hitherto, this has been practiced in some parts of the country.  Toward the end of the second decade of achieving nationhood status, Nigeria witnessed a phenomenal expansion at all levels of her education (Olaniyi, 2012).

When the issue of Nigeria education system today is raised, the thought that come to mind are: decline in standard, deterioration of facilities, examination malpractices, mass promotion syndrome and the like before any other thing else. This calls for an in-depth study and analysis aimed at tutoring each and every stakeholder in the education system on how their actions have individually and collectively contributed to the collapsing state of education in Nigeria. In any case, knowledge and skill acquisition which education is all about cannot be over emphasized. According to the World Bank (2013), “successful development entails more than investing in physical capital, or closing the gap in capital. It also entails acquiring and using knowledge as well as closing the gaps in knowledge”. Thus, to successfully confront the challenges of development, a developing country must undertake three major tasks:

  • Ø Acquired and adapt global knowledge and create knowledge locally.
  • Ø Invest in human capital to increase the ability to absorb and use knowledge; and
  • Ø Invest in technologies to facilitate both acquisition and the absorption of knowledge.

Similarly, Fafunwa (2006) defines education as “the aggregate of all the processes by which a child or adult develops the abilities, attitudes and other forms of behaviour, which are of positive value to the society in which he lives. That is to say, it is a process of disseminating knowledge either to ensure social control or to guarantee rational direction of the society or both.” Response however  will be its factors influencing the progress of secondary schools stemming from the incidence of examination malpractice – poor facilities – indiscriminate mass promotion syndrome in schools. The causes of these could be traced to:

  • Ø Government insensitivity to education needs
  • Ø Government and private institutions open encouragement of low productivity, and
  • Ø Lack of the spirit of hard-work among growing number of students (Fafunwa 2006).

    PROJECT TOPIC- FACTORS INFLUENCING THE PROGRESS OF SECONDARY EDUCATION IN OHAOZARA LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF EBONYI STATE

Secondary education is provided for the child after primary education, that is, before tertiary education. It is aimed at developing a child better than the primary level, because, it is obvious that primary education is insufficient for a child to acquire literacy, numeracy, and communication skills (Yusuf, 2009; Ige, 2011). Such education is provided in secondary school, which can be owned by government (State or Federal), individuals or community. From the foregoing, the study is set to ascertain the factors influencing the progress of secondary education in Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.

Statement of the Problem

          It is not a gainsaying that secondary education is unique in the educational development of a child, being the link between primary and tertiary education. The knowledge, skills, values, and traits which a child acquires at this stage will complement those acquired at the primary level and when these are combined, will prepare such child for tertiary education. In spite of the role of secondary education, it has been observed that education is riddled with crises of various dimensions and magnitude, all of which combine to suggest that it is at a crossroad.

In a close examination of secondary education in Nigeria, it has been revealed that some factors influencing the progress of secondary education in other part of the country also influence the progress of secondary education in Ohaozara Local Government Area as a part of the nation, this study is set to fine out and thus ask: What are the factors influencing the progress of secondary education in Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State?

Purpose of the study

This study tried to ascertain the factors influencing the progress of secondary education in Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. Specifically, the study sought to ascertain how:

  • Ø Inadequate provision of instructional material can hinder the progress of secondary education in Ohaozara LGA of Ebonyi State.
  • Ø Dissatisfaction (Attitude) of teachers can be factors influencing the progress of secondary education in Ohaozara LGA of Ebonyi State.
  • Ø Improper classroom management can be factors influencing the progress of secondary education in Ohaozara LGA of Ebonyi State.
