SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION POLICY IMPLEMENTATION IN KEBBI STATE: A SITUATION ANALYSIS
Kebbi state and Nigerian educational system as indicated in the national policy on education are oriented towards scientific and technological development of the state and nation in general, among other values. Since the acquisition of sound knowledge, particularly science and technology, is crucial for individual and societal development. The paper seeks to philosophically examine the effectiveness of Kebbi state’s school system in providing sound scientific and technological knowledge to their products, with particular reference to Science and Technical schools. The method of philosophical analysis was adopted in undertaking the study. Although some traces of pragmatist's and empiricist’s educational ideas could be found enshrined in Kebbi State’s guiding policy on education, science and technology, a number of implementation problems render the practice ineffective. Thus, the paper highlighted the need to ensure that practice is in consistence with the policy to ensure the acquisition of sound scientific knowledge.
