An Assessment of the Spatial Distribution of Government Secondary Schools In Zaria Area,Kaduna State
The development of educational infrastructure is a pre-requisite to National development in all its ramifications. Accordingly, this paper assesses the spatial distribution of Government Owned Secondary Schools (GOSS) in the Zaria Area. It reveals that the spatial distribution of Government Owned Secondary Schools in Zaria area is very uneven. The paper argues that uneven distribution of Government Owned Secondary education facilities as well as their inadequacy and inefficiency encourage the proliferation of Private Owned Secondary Schools (POSS) and has serious consequences on the educational services provided and therefore, the quality of education and its standard. It recommends that future locations should consider areas poorly served with the view of increasing their services, and numbers.
