Synthesis of Solutions to Corruption in Primary Education in Delta State of Nigeria

Daniel Duwovwiji Whawo

Abstract
This survey of primary school teachers in Delta State of Nigeria, was undertaken to evolve
actionable strategies for providing solution to corruption in the primary school system. Three
research questions were drawn up to establish the opinions of the respondents (teachers) on
ways to achieve a corruption-free primary education, tackle fraud in the schools and
institutionalise transparency and accountability in them. The data obtained from open-ended
questionnaires administered on primary school teachers showed that among several opinions,
the provision of adequate school facilities, care for the welfare of teachers, combating of
examination malpractices, reward for good behaviour and hard work and punishment for
established cases of corruption, were suggested by them. Other suggestions include expanding
the provision of modern school infrastructure and equipment which should be securely
protected by host communities, appointment of internal and external auditors to check school
account records regularly, were offered. Committees made up of local government officials as
well as Parents-Teachers Association (PTA) should equally be set up to tackle all forms of
malpractices in the schools.
