Abstract

The study assessed the implementation of policy strategic objectives of ensuring mass education and distribution of resources for adult and non-formal education in Imo State. Two research questions guided the study and two null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. The population of the study comprised 18,138 respondents (18,129 adult learners and 9 staff of agency for ANFE) in Imo State. The sample for the study was 920 respondents made up of 911 adult learners and 9 staff of agency for ANFE drawn using multistage sampling procedure. A researcher-developed instrument titled ‘‘Implementation of Policy Strategic Objectives of ensuring Mass Education and Distribution of Resources Questionnaire (IPSOMEDRQ)’’ was used for data collection. The instrument was validated by three experts, one in the Department of Adult and Continuing Education and one in Measurement and Evaluation in the Department of Educational Foundations, all in the Faculty of Education, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka and third is the Director of Imo State Agency for Adult and Non-Formal Education. Cronbach alpha was used for a test of internal consistency of the instrument which yielded reliability coefficients of 0.81 and 0.79 for Clusters I and II respectively with an overall coefficient of 0.80. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions, while t-test was used to test the null hypotheses. The findings of the study revealed among others that policy strategic objectives on ensuring mass education and distribution of resources were implemented to a high extent in Imo State. Also there is no significant difference in the mean ratings of adult learners and staff of agency of ANFE on the implementation of all dimensions of policy strategic objectives for adult and non-formal education in Imo State. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that the Federal Government should increase budgetary allocation to the education sector and facilitators in centres should engage in school-community partnerships to solicit funds to improve the procurement and distribution of resources in learning centres.
