Abstract

This study was designed to bring out the correlation between Secondary School Mapping and Physical Resource Management in Ekiti State, Nigeria. A sample of 76 out of 171 Schools was made from both urban and rural areas of Ekiti State. A 48-item questionnaire was used to elicit data. All the Schools Principals were purposively used as participants, while 1,140 teachers were selected out of 3,175 using random sampling technique to respond to the research instrument used. Data were analyzed using Pearson product moment correlation statistics method. The findings revealed that the factors of school location had a significant correlation with physical resource management. In the same vein, students posting had a significant correlation with physical resource management. On the strength of this, it was recommended that government should objectively consider locating secondary schools close to schools experiencing overutilization of physical resources to assuage enrolment challenges, while public-private partnership should be encouraged in the provision of physical resources in secondary schools.
