Abstract or Introduction
This article focuses on the impact of privatization of education on the teaching and learning process. The research was conducted using both direct and indirect approaches. The researcher used interviews, reference citations, anecdotal records, and an opinion questionnaire as data collection tools.
The researcher analyzes and presents the data obtained from the target groups. However, the findings of the research show that the main problems in teaching and learning are the inadequate implementation of education laws and policies and the contextual examination of privatization policies in education at all levels (primary, post-primary, and tertiary) to establish standards. Despite the confluence of factors such as dilapidated classrooms, inefficient infrastructure facilities, and a scarcity of qualified teachers to support the learning process, the lack of effective community participation in monitoring standards is also a contributing factor. Moreover, the indigenous education system was established before 1960. Western education was accepted by missionaries first in the southern part of Nigeria, then in three regions, and later, after independence, was disseminated nationwide by government agencies. Educational guidelines were issued in 1977 and last amended in 2013.
