Abstract

The study investigates school administrators’ utilization of alternative education models in implementation of migrant fisher-folk education programme in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria. Two (2) specific objectives and two research questions were posed to guide the study. Descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. The target population for the study comprised 217 (nomadic) migrant schools with teaching staff strength of 1,152.106 schools were sampled. And 126 respondents were selected purposively. Two research questions and hypotheses guided the study. Data collection was through a modified rating scale (Questionnaire) designed by the researcher. The validated instrument was analysed with Pearson Product Moment Correlation statistics to obtain reliability indices of 0.87. Analysis was done on an item-by-item basis using the mean and hypotheses tested using z-test at 0.05 level of significance. The mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions. Finding of the study revealed that school administrators employed actively involve migrant fisher-folk communities in the educational process, ensuring their cultural values and specific needs are integrated into the alternative education models implemented both in Bayelsa and Rivers States. Based on the findings, the researcher concluded while challenges exist in the utilization of alternative education models within the migrant fisher-folk education programme, promising opportunities for improvement through community engagement, teacher support, and innovative strategies suggest a path toward more inclusive and effective education for migrant fisher-folk in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that government establish community-driven curriculum development committees.
