Abstract

Education policy in Nigeria have undergone significant changes for a long time geared towards the effective administration, management and implementation of education at all tiers of government. In fact, it continues to be the central point of discourse owing to the role it has in the measurement of whether a country is developed or not. The objective of this paper is to identify the implementation challenges of National Policy on Education and proffer suggestions on the way out for the effective implementation of the policy. This paper adopts a qualitative method of data analysis, which was thematically done relying on secondary sources. The paper identifies corruption, lack of continuity in government policies by successive administration, inadequate human and material resources and others as the major implementation challenges of the policy. The paper suggests that there is need for the mobilizations of grassroots by the civil societies and all stake holders to support and enforce the implementation of the constitutional provision for education and tie it to their vote, there is also a need to enforce compliance of all sector of education from early childhood care to the development of special needs school and also ensure that there is continuous monitoring and evaluation of the policy so as to fill in the gaps that may occur during the process of implementation, among others as the way out for in dealing with the implementation challenges of National Policy on Education in Nigeria
