Effective Maintenance of Physical facilities in Secondary Schools Bauchi State, Nigeria
This study investigated the effectiveness of maintenance of physical facilities in Bauchi State Secondary Schools, Nigeria. The study adopted a descriptive research design populated with Principals, vice principals, and Maintenance Officers, numbering 72. The samples were based on twenty-four Senior Secondary Schools, derived through stratified random sampling techniques based on the senatorial districts using SPSS Software, Version 23. Statistical methods used in analysing the data include percentage, mean, standard deviation, and independent t-test statistics. Results show poor maintenance culture in public schools, which implies that the physical facilities are seldom maintained. Funding was part of the major problems that hindered the maintenance of the school facilities. It was recommended that there is the need for a thorough understanding of the practical principles and practices of managing school physical facilities by the school administrators in secondary schools to enhance facilities' lifespan and ensure maximal usage, which will guarantee optimal efficacy in the utilisation of facilities in the long run.
