CHALLENGES AND STRATEGIES FOR EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT OF EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES IN NIGERIAN PUBLIC SCHOOLS

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study

There is a growing concern for the spate of poor output of the educational system in Nigeria. Stakeholders have decried the manner in which the educational system is loosing its value coupled with the unimpressive performance of students in external examinations, especially at the secondary school level. A lot of reasons have been given for this situation ranging from poor or inadequate resources to poor teacher quality and quantity. However, the kernel of entrenching quality into public schools lies in the provision and management of educational facilities.

In educational institutions, school facilities constitute essential inputs which could guarantee favourable learning environment and enhance the achievement of educational objectives. According to Asiyai (2012), school facilities include the entire school plant which school administrators, teachers and students harness, allocate, and utilize for the smooth and efficient management of any educational institution. In the school, educational facilities serve as pillars of support for effective teaching and learning thereby making the process meaningful and purposeful. School facilities include permanent and semi-permanent structures, such as machinery, laboratory equipment, the blackboard, teachers’ tools and other equipment as well as consumables. Educational facilities also refer to non-human and non-financial resources which include all movable and immovable materials which are used for teaching, learning and other school activities.

The provision of school facilities bring about a conducive teaching and learning environment for teachers, students and other staff members to perform their duties effectively; a good school environment fosters desirable behaviour, creativity, harmonious relationship and problem solving skills among students. In the same vain, the quality and standard of educational output depends on the extent to which school facilities are provided and managed. Hence Akinsolu, (2004) asserted that educational curriculum cannot be sound and well operated with poor and badly managed school facilities which include classroom, laboratories, workshops, libraries, equipment, consumables, electricity, water, visual and audio visual aids, tables, desks, chairs, playground, storage space and toilets.

Managing these facilities pose a major challenge for school administrators especially in public schools with its continuous increase in student enrolment without a corresponding increase in school facilities. This paper therefore takes an overview of educational facilities in Nigerian public secondary schools, challenges and strategies for effective management.
