Abstract

The students’ low performance in senior school certificate examinations conducted by West African Examination Council between 1999 and 2016, as indicated by the Oyo State government in 2016, led the Oyo State government to institute the School Governing Boards (SGBs) for all Public Secondary Schools (PSSs) in the State. This is with a view of remediating the management of public secondary schools (MPSSs) which has been mostly attributed to the general poor students’ performance. Previous studies worked on effects of school facilities on students’ academic performance, conditions and availability of academic buildings in public secondary schools, with little or no emphasis on the relationship between socio-demographic factors of SGBs and Management of Human Resources (MHRs) in PSSs in Oyo State, Nigeria. Hence, the study investigated SGBs’ socio-demographic factors and management of human resources in PSSs in Oyo State, Nigeria. The study adopted correlational survey design while multistage sampling procedure was used to sample respondents. A total of one thousand, five hundred and eighty-five (1585) SGB members across the six educational zones in Oyo State, Nigeria were sampled for this study. Data were collected through self-structured questionnaire and were analysed with descriptive statistics and Pearson Product Moment Correlation at 0.05 level of significance. The study revealed that socio-demographic factors (age, educational qualification and marital status) of the SGB members had positive significant relationship with MHRs but gender did not. The MHRs by the SGB was found to be low. Proper management of human resources in schools should be done by the SGB towards achieving the stated public secondary schools objectives.
