Problems and Prospects of Education Resource Centres in Nigeria
Ekanem, Johnson Efiong
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n30 p66-70 2015
Nigeria has good policies on Education and one of such policies is the establishment of Education Resource Centres in every State of the Federation, including the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. The need is clearly articulated in the National Policy on Education. Despite the lofty plan, most of the centres are not fulfilling the need for their establishment. This paper traces the history of ERC in Nigeria, contemplates on the ideal expectations of ERC and presents the current situation of ERC in Nigeria. It uses critical analysis research approach. As a result of the analysis, it has been found out that poor implementation and misplacement of funding from government have negative effects on the growth of the ERC. Suggestions are also made to help achieve the aim of the already established ERCs in Nigeria.
