ABSTRACT

 This study assessed the funding ofthe adult literacy education programme in Abia State. The study was guided by five objectives. Based on the five objectives, five research questions were posed for the study and five null hypotheses were also tested at 0.05 level of significance. The study adopted the Descriptive Survey Research Design. The population of the study was 3,287 which comprise 2,629 Adult learners, 214 Staff of the agency of Adult Literacy Education Programme and 444 facilitators across 204 adult education centres from the Seventeen (17) Local Government Areas (L.G.As) of the three Education Zones that made up Abia State. The sample of the study was 400 respondents which comprised of 320 adult learners, 26 Staff ofthe Agency and 54 facilitators and the study adopted the multistage sampling technique. The instrument for data collection was the “Assessment of Funding of Adult Literacy Education Programme in Abia State Questionnaire” (AFALEPAS). The instrument was validated by three experts; which comprises two from the department of adult education and one from the department of educational measurement and evaluation. The overall reliability coefficient of the instrument was 0.83 and was determined using the Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (PPMCC) statistic after a test retest was carried out. The data for the study was collected through the administration of 400 Copies of the “Assessment of Funding of Adult Literacy Education Programme in Abia State”. The research questions were answered using mean and standard deviations, while the Analysis Of Variance (ANOVA) was used to test 5 null hypotheses at 0.05 level ofsignificance. Findings ofthe study revealed that funding of adult literacy Education programme is sourced from the State government, Federal government, the NGOs, the Local Government Education Authority, Foreign aids and the administrative charges the adult learners pay. These sources of funding of adult literacy education programme are not adequate for the funding of the programme. The adult education agencies do not adequately utilize the available funds for the efficient administration ofthe adult education programme. Based on the findings, the study recommends that government at all levels and Non-Governmental Oiganisations (NGOs) should continue to increase their allocation to the funding of education in general and the funding of the adult literacy education programme in particular. At least they should adopt the minimum of 26% budgetary allocation to education as recommended by UNESCO. The government should put mechanism to ensure that the available funds for the funding of adult education are adequately utilized in the administration of adult literacy education programme
