Assessment of school plant planning: A case of ICT schools’ SWOT analysis in the Funtua Metropolis
Keywords:ICT, Education, School Plant Planning, SWOT Analysis, computer
This research examines the existing ICT schools' effectiveness and the feasibility of planting a well-established, curriculum-based, and practical-oriented ICT school in Funtua through SWOT analysis. Descriptive research of the survey-type design was used in the study. The population for this study involved all the proprietors/proprietresses, students, and teachers of the existing 10 ICT/Computer schools. A random sampling method was adopted in selecting the samples targeted. The targeted population samples were 35 students, 15 teachers, and ten proprietors from 6 existing ICT/Computer Schools and prospective students (or residents) in Funtua Metropolis, Katsina State, Nigeria. A self-designed research instrument was used to collect data for the study. Data collected were subjected to analysis. The research questions suggesting the respondents’ opinions were evaluated via their mean and standard deviation. The responses/opinion mean less than 3.5 were rejected while others were accepted. The F-test method was used to test the null hypotheses. These findings reveal that the motives of people enrolling in ICT schools were to acquire knowledge and feel it is essential. The rating level of computer literacy was good, while the students’ performance in the existing schools was average. The residents’ level of Computer/ICT literacy was confirmed to be poor, and the performance of existing schools’ students was confirmed to be significantly low. The existing schools were confirmed not to be considerably attracting people. Instead, they discourage people from patronizing them for knowledge’s sake. It was confirmed that there is a significant chance that new schools would gain people’s attraction in the metropolis. Moreover, it was confirmed that there are no significant threats that a new school stands to confront in its process of planting and operation, which implies proprietors do not have much to worry about as a threat in the community.
