Abstract

The study examined motivational and operational involvement of private sector in education enterprise, and determined the implication on students’ learning outcome in secondary schools in Ondo State. Survey and ex-post-facto research designs were adopted. 98 top-management members completed the instrument titled “Private Sector Involvement in Education Enterprise Questionnaire” (PSIEEQ) in 49 secondary schools using multi-stage sampling technique. Four research questions and two hypotheses were formulated. Data were analyzed using percentage, mean score and pearson product moment correlation statistics at p<0.05 level of significance. The result showed low relationship between motivational factors and operation of school business (r=-0.236, p<0.05); also there was low relationship between operational factors and students’ learning outcome (r=0.185, p<0.05), The proprietors are largely motivated by the need to salvage education standard; students’ learning outcome was low at a cumulative mean score of 4.31 which confirmed the 40.3% average level of performance recorded between 2012 and 2014; the major challenges included irregular payment of school fees (61.3%), inadequate classrooms (34.7%), inadequate qualified teachers (38.8%), inadequate learning resources (57.1%), poor road networks (38.8%), irregular electricity supply (53.1%) and policy threats (59.3%). It is therefore concluded that state government should create enabling policy and improve the condition of social amenities while proprietors should give more commitment to the provision of adequate qualified teachers, updated libraries, well equipped laboratories, standard workshops and adequate instructional materials to improve students’ learning outcome in secondary schools.
