Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n23 p120-124 2015
The study investigated the perceptions of staff and students on the use of school disciplinary measures and public awareness campaign strategy in the management of cultism in tertiary institutions in Nigeria. The study is guided by two hypotheses tested using the t-test statistics. An instrument containing 10 items properly validated was used in gathering data from 740 staff and 740 students randomly selected from higher institutions in following States--Edo, Anambra, Ondo, Kwara and Kano State. The analysis of data shows that there is no significant difference in the perceptions of staff and students in the use of public awareness campaign strategy such as public lectures, symposium, seminars, workshop, posters, handbills and the involvement of print and electronic media in the management of cultism. There was a remarkable difference in the perceptions of staff and students in the use of school disciplinary measures, such as expulsion, rustication, withdrawal etc in the management of cultism. Based on these findings useful recommendations were made.
