Community Involvement in the Development of Secondary Schools in Jos – South Local Government Area

Cecilia Chinwe Nwufo, Enoch Ibu Otor


Education which is the bedrock of any meaningful development in an enlightened society has been one of the areas the government is not giving priority to at the Federal, State and Local Government Levels. It is against this background that the community, that is, other agencies and or group of individuals’ aside the government have been given the free hand to make contributions towards education especially at the secondary school level, based on some given guidelines. In the light of this, this research asks if the communities are involved in secondary education?. What area(s) are the communities involved and how have their involvement made better impact on the academic performances of secondary school education? The study employs a survey research design where a sample of schools were selected and studied, the result used to represent the variable in all the Secondary Schools in Jos-South Local Government Area of Plateau State.
