Abstract


The essence of science education
is to produce confident, self-employable, scientifically, and technically sound
men and women. Unfortunately, the chemistry curriculum appears not to have
achieved much of its objectives. These lapses might have been caused by
non-availability and usability of chemistry laboratory facilities for teaching
organic chemistry. It is against this background that this study examined the
extent  of availability and usability of
chemistry laboratory facilities for teaching organic chemistry in senior
secondary schools in Nsukka Local Government area of Enugu State. The study was
carried out in fifteen different schools with the sample of one teacher from
each school. An inventory containing 69 items was designed for the study. Data
collected were analyzed using percentage and mean. The study indicates that the
extent at which chemistry laboratory facilities for teaching organic chemistry
in senior secondary school are available and utilized is very low, Based on the
findings of this study in adequate provision of chemistry laboratory facilities
in senior secondary schools by the government influences the extent at which
teachers utilizes chemistry laboratory facilities for teach
ing organic
chemistry. Therefore government should ensure adequate provision of laboratory
facilities, schools should source  funds
from organization like PTA and NGOs and finally, teachers should develop the
spirit of professionalism by using the available laboratory facilities in teaching
organic chemistry.
