This study was motivated by the premise that no nation grows further than the quality of its education. The paper presents an investigation on the relationships between funding, ICT, selection processes, administration and planning and the standard of science teacher education in Nigeria. The data for the study was gathered through a two page questionnaire administered to 180 respondents who were accessible in the Faculties of Education and Schools of Education of selected institutions. In total, 154 questionnaires were retrieved, representing an 86% return rate. At the same time, the data was analyzed using the SPSS version 13.01 software program. The survey was carried out to discover the perception of university and College of Education academic and non-academic staff regarding the impact of funding, ICT, selection processes, administration and planning of teacher education programs in Nigeria. It was suggested that both the academic and non-academic staff were disgruntled with the sluggish integration of the investigated variables in both state and federal owned institutions of higher education in general and teacher education programs in particular. (Contains 4 tables and 3 figures.)
