1.1. BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY.
Parents –Teachers Association can be seen as a voluntary and welfare body of parents/guardians of children or want of a particular school and teachers within the same school and teachers, geared with the objectives of realizing the aims and objectives of the educational system.
The Federal Government of Nigeria regards education as an instrument par excellence for effecting national development, hence; her philosophy of education is therefore based on the integration of the individual into a sound and effective citizens and equal educational opportunities for all citizens of the nations. From the civilian era to the second republic to the present regime, education has occupied a core position in government area of emphasis and administration. However, the Federal and the State Government alone cannot provide adequately for the education of the people, hence other voluntary bodies and participants were sought.
Since the schools exist with the community, it cannot be isolated from it both in the area of its administration financing and curriculum enrichment. The community has to work hand in hand with its school for the total emancipation and education of the child. The avenues that would provide the medium for this includes the Parent’s-Teachers Association (PARENTS -TEACHERS ASSOCIATION).
The informal emergence of Parent’s-Teachers Association in Nigeria could be perhaps be date back to the beginning of Western education from the 1840s, when the Christian mission bodies pioneered the provision of education services. Phrag Ezeccha (1985) deducted that the origin of Parent’s-Teachers Association worldwide was linked with the organization called “National Congress of Mothers” founded in America in 1977 and which incorporated parents and teachers in 1924, it involved itself in fashioning out curriculum and vital policy decision for schools in USA. Although, it is not precisely clear to us whether the British colonial government took a cue from the American experience.
The existence of Parents-Teachers Association appeared to have been formalized when one R.A. MCL Pavidson was appointed a director of education in 1944, the memorandum inter-alia “advanced the policy of involving the local communities in the control of education” (Taiwo, 1980. Pg.87)
Naturally, the phenomenon of Parent’s-Teachers Association must have started earlier in the primary schools than in the post-primary institutions. Be that as it may suffice it s say that “a school Parents Teachers Association emergence as soon as the school comes into existence”. This implies that informally, the various Parent’s-Teachers Association in secondary school education in Ipokia Local Government area are as old as the respective school themselves.
During the Oil boom in Nigeria (i.e. 1960s-1970s), there was a lot of money to use for financing education and government could provide virtually everything. Now, there is a great economic depression and schools have to find ways of financing various activities. With the realization, however; that government alone cannot run the schools single handedly, it has become imperative to find other means of helping the schools. Since Parents Teachers Association has been known to have of immense help in countries as the United States, why not in Nigeria?
The organization has been reputed as a form of bringing close interaction between the home and the school also as a means of governing community interest in the schools. Parent’s-Teachers Association, it is assured, could do more than it is reputed to be doing now if proper study is made about its “modus operandi” i.e. its aims or purposes, structure and programmes of activities.
This work is therefore aimed at researching into the role and activities of such organization such as the Parent’s-Teachers Association in developing secondary education in Ipokia Local Government Area
1.2. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
