x-rayed the state of Nigerian educational system with
interest on secondary education. While pointing out that
both human and material resources were inadequate and those
available dilapidated, the paper emphasized on the need to
adopt basic, general, technical and vocational education
with quality maintained and sustained as experience has
shown in developed countries like Britain, New Zealand,
Germany, among others. To maintain and sustain quality, the
paper suggested indices such as students’ capacity and
motivation to learn in relation to curriculum and subjects
to be leant, qualified teachers as recommended, availability
of requisite tools for teaching and learning, expected net
effects of all the inputs on the students (academic, moral,
spiritual, cultural values, etc), manageable
teacher-students ratios, among others. To maintain quality
in Nigerian schools has often been faced with challenges
such as lack of trained supervisors, inadequate facilities
for teachers, poor remuneration, teachers’ poor attitude to
work, lack of adequate statistical compilation in the school
system among others. The paper then suggested prompt
addressing of these issues to guarantee good quality
education system in line with the nation’s and students’
Key words: human resources; non-human resources and quality.
