Abstract

This paper focuses on the provision and management of school facilities for the management of UBE programme.
School facilities are those things that enable the teacher to carry out his/her work well and also help the learners to learn
effectively. School facilities are vital tools in the teaching and learning process, hence the justification for their adequate
provision and management. The school facilities are divided into instructional, recreational, residential and general-purpose
types. They can be maintained through regular, emergency or prevention and periodic maintenance. Eight stages are discussed
for the management of these facilities. However, it has been observed that these facilities are not adequately provided for our
secondary schools for the implementation of this programme. The indicators are dilapidated school buildings, ill- equipped
libraries and laboratories, lack of games facilities, computers e.t.c. However, for the successful implementation for UBE
programme, all these school facilities must be adequately provided for and managed. The government should provide all
necessary facilities, the school head should ensure optimal utilization of these facilities and make sure that they are well
maintained.
