ABSTRACTS


EDUCATING THE NIGERIAN YOUTHS FOR AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT

BY

DR. F.M. ONU

DEPARTMENT OF VOCATIONAL TEACHER EDUCATION

UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIA, NSUKKA

Abstract

One of the fundamental issues confronting man today is too many people in the face of too little food being produced to match the fast-growing numbers. The difficulty and mechanics of producing sufficient food for mankind are grave issues indeed; but the problem of man not being able to meet his food requirements is largely caused by having high percentage of the old (aged) “rustic and illiterate villagers” who are over fifty years working in the farms. Scholars had suggested that youths should be encouraged to take up farming as their occupation if Nigerian agriculture should develop. By involving the young people who already have negative attitude towards agriculture to participate in farming without first preparing their minds in the job of farming is not likely to change the scene. The minds of the Nigerian youth need to be structured through education for a purposeful and determined struggle towards agricultural development if the nation can meet her food demands. The starting point is of course the preparation of their minds through education and these calls for an appraisal of the problems of agricultural education in the light of the impediments of agricultural development in Nigeria. Strategies for involving the youth in agriculture are highlighted.


^ IMPLEMENTATION OF THE VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION COMPONENT OF THE NATIONAL POLICY ON EDUCATION AT THE CROSS-ROAD; ANY WAY OUT?


BY

DR. F.M. ONU

DEPARTMENT OF VOCATIONAL TEACHER EDUCATION

UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIA, NSUKKA

Abstract

The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) in 1981 revised her National Policy on education and in it amplified the introduction and teaching of vocational education subjects into the Nigeria Secondary school curricular. The introduction of vocational education subjects into the school curricular is to develop in the students useful skills, attitudes and behaviors in addition to normal acquisition of academic knowledge. The said document adopted a three-year junior secondary in which students are to be pre-disposed to broad curriculum offerings including being exposed to an acquisition of vocational skills and attitudes, after a six-year primary education. The current educational system which took off in 1982 are expected to bring about changes in the schools to obtain the desired out-comes. This implies having a new outlook, new techniques, expansion of facilities in schools, production of secondary schools graduates with employable skills; in short a revolutionary attempt to change the previous system to the desired system.

There is no doubt that this plan is a radical departure from the existing system and if well implemented would definitely enable the nation to meet the pressing needs of our time and move along the part that will make the nation attain parity with leading nations of the world. But unfortunately, the implementation has been haphazard and the introduction of Junior Secondary School which was started in September 1982 is becoming a cause. The various governments at different levels seemed not to have accorded the plan such priority even though education consumes the highest national and state’s budgetary allocation in the recent past. It is widely accepted that lack of functionality of Nigerian Vocational Education System is largely responsible for the nation’s under-development. The nation has relied for too long on paper qualifications and purely academic education rather than skill acquisition. Under the present circumstances, it would appear that the Nigerian educational system has never faced greater challenges. It should be appreciated that never before has our schools been in greater turmoil, our learning process more confused, and our reaction to these situations more ineffective. The present system of education in Nigeria at the moment is not merely at the crossroads; it is in a state of distress/crisis requiring solutions.

^ CONSTRAINTS MILITATING AGAINST THE ESTABLISHMENT OF LIVESTOCK FARMS IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN SOUTH-EASTERN NIGERIA


BY

DR. F.M. ONU

DEPARTMENT OF VOCATIONAL TEACHER EDUCATION

UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIA, NSUKKA

Abstract

Livestock farms in secondary schools when properly established will equip the students with skills in livestock production. In order that livestock farms are established in secondary schools, the West African Examinations Council has requested that schools presenting candidates for her examinations should establish at least, one specie of livestock farms for schools practical activities in livestock production. Despite all the merits of establishing livestock farms in secondary schools, and the condition imposed by WAEC, current experiences have shown that secondary schools do not have livestock farms. The poor state of affairs made the researcher to carry out this study to investigate the constraints, which militate against livestock establishment in secondary schools, and to suggest possible remedies. To guide the study, two research questions and two hypotheses were formulated. Proportionate random sampling techniques were used to sample 930 subjects made up of 465 principals and 465 Agricultural science heads of department from government secondary schools in the South Eastern Nigeria. The instrument used for data collection was the questionnaire and the method of data analysis was by the mean, standard deviation and t-test statistic. Among the findings of the study were; that inadequate provision of funds and high cost of constructing livestock houses among others were the constraints militating against the establishment of livestock farms in schools. The strategies to be employed to establish livestock farms include; inclusion of agricultural science fee in the school fees where fees are charged to help in financing agricultural science programmes like livestock farming.

^ NEED FOR IMPROVING THE TRAINING PROGRAMMES OF PRIMARY SCHOOL AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION TEACHERS FOR THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF NIGERIA


BY

DR. F.M. ONU

DEPARTMENT OF VOCATIONAL TEACHER EDUCATION

UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIA, NSUKKA

Abstract

The agricultural and economic development of any nation depends to a large extent, on the quality of her teachers, especially the teachers of agriculture, which, in turn, is dependent on such factors like professional and pedagogical competence of the teachers. The quality of the teachers depends on the quality of their training programme. For the teacher’s effectiveness, their training programme should be improved. From the foregoing, the paper examines the objectives of agricultural teacher education programme and the present scheme for training agricultural education teachers (NCE and graduate teachers) in Nigeria. It goes further to suggest how the entire training scheme for agricultural education teachers can be improved to provide adequate and competent teachers’ needs for the production of well-qualified workforce that will propel the agricultural and economic sectors of the economy to great heights. Conclusions are also drawn.

DR. F.M. ONU

DEPARTMENT OF VOCATIONAL TEACHER EDUCATION

UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIA, NSUKKA

Abstract

The study was conducted to investigate the competencies possessed by principals of secondary schools for combating examination malpractices in secondary schools. The findings show that the principals do not possess the competencies required for combating examination malpractices in secondary schools, thereby leading to the rise in the incidence of examination malpractices in the schools. It was recommended that all the principals should be equipped with the required competencies for controlling examination malpractices in secondary schools through seminars and workshops.
