Abstract

The study investigated utilization of resource provision on effective management of schools. Resources are the vital structures of effective and efficient functional education. Hence, the role of resources in ensuring the importance of these educational materials goes beyond their mere provision. They can only be optimally and efficient when they are adequately utilized and maintained. Studies have shown that the principal obstacle to the maintenance of resources in the school system is finance. One of the fundamental ways of ensuring the optimum utility of available resources is through, maintenance culture. Maintenance culture of any school speaks much about such an institution. The general appearance of school resources/facilities constitute the basis upon which members of the public pass their judgments about the academic performance going on in the school. The present economic recession being experienced world over has made it absolute imperative that the gospel of maintenance culture be preached very loudly in our education industry. Learners study properly where there are good building structures, seats for instructors and students, equipment, adequate light and water supply. Teaching and learning are also enhanced where there are nice libraries stocked with books, laboratories and workshops. Where material resources are insufficient, effective teaching and learning are affected. Lack of funds and poor maintenance culture were some of the factors militating against resource provision. The following recommendations amongst others were made; adequate material resources should be provided and Utilized for effective management of schools and government should enact policies that will encourage and promote the provision of material resources for effective management of schools.
