INTRODUCTION  

The wealth of a given nation is probably determined by the quality of its education system. The quality of the nation’s education system depends to a large extent on how effective the primary education is and this is because it is the foundation on which the rest of the education is built on.

Primary education is the starting point for most Nigerian children and their first experience of schooling at the age of six years. In other words, it is the first tier of the 6-3-3-4 Nigerian education system which is for six years duration.

It is the level of education which develops in the child the ability to read, write and calculate. It is in line with this however, the Federal Republic of Nigeria (2004) states that “primary education is the formal education given to children aged 6-11 years and above”. 

It further stresses that since the rest of the-education is built upon it, the primary level of education is the key to the success or failure of the whole national education system.

The management of primary education therefore passed through different stages and different authorities exercised its control. 

Fafunwa (1974) asserted that “the universal primary education programme of 1976 indicated the government dynamic policy to favour the education of the masses on the basis that every Nigerian child has an inalienable right to a minimum of six years of education if he is to function effectively as a citizen of Nigeria.
