Agabi, Chinyere Onyemaechi (Ph.D.)

Department of Educational Management, Ignatius Ajuru University of Education Rumuolumeni, Port Harcourt, Nigeria P.M.B 5047
Abstract: Nigeria is one country that seems very anxious to develop the right type of human resources for her growing economy and rightly so. However, providing education that is of good quality has been greatly challenged by the inability of government to back the education system with sufficient funding. This situation has given rise to a number of other problems that continue to plague the education system in the country. Prominent among these factors are conscious dilution of teacher quality, societal backing for examination malpractice, anti-education school environment etc. In view of this situation, the quality of school system graduates is also being questioned by employers of labour.
