Abstract

The paper examined the perception of the principals and Teachers on the impact of Bayelsa Education Development Trust Fund.  A total of 120 teachers and 9 principals participated in the study. Descriptive survey design was employed and the instrument for data collection was “Impact of Bayelsa Education Development Trust Fund Questionnaire”. The instrument attained a reliability coefficient of 0.81, 0.80, 0.79 using Cronbach Alpha method, which was considered appropriate. The data gathered was analyzed using mean and standard deviation, while the 3 research hypotheses were tested using Z-test statistic. The results established that there is no significant difference in the perception of principals and teachers on the mandate, mode and challenges associated with the implementation of Bayelsa State Education Development Trust Fund. It was recommended that the government should ensure that strict measures are put in place to compel concerned agencies and bodies to pay their dues as stipulated by the provisions of the law.
