THE ROLE OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF EDUCATION IN ANINRI LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF ENUGU STATE
ABSTRACT

The project titled “The Role of Local Government in the Development of Education in Aninri local government Area of Enugu State” the study identified the extent the local government education authorities fulfil their statutory roles in funding of education; the constraints to local government education authorities participation in the funding of education and how the identified constraints affect effective local government education authorities participation in the funding of education. The study adopted Ex-post facto research method in which the direct delivery and retrieval method was employed in the administration of instrument. A census population of 390,681 public schools in Aninri local government was used. But the sample of 235 respondent were used.  In analyzing the data, the researcher used mean and standard deviation to answer research questions and t-test to test formulated hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The study found out that local governments have play a significant roles to schools by ensuring the adherence to standards and quality, by improving infrastructure, teaching and learning materials and providing training.  And therefore LGs should prepare economic plans and development plans and are responsible for the provision and maintenance of primary, adult and vocational education also that each state should review their UBE and LG laws to reflect clearly defined roles, responsibilities, functions, reporting and financing structures.

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
Background to the Study
Local governments play a key role in public education in the Enugu State from kindergarten to community college, local governments, along with states, provide the primary funding for public schools. As a public good that calls for greater support from the Local Government), corporate organizations, and individuals. Public good, according to Ekeocha and Fonta (2015) is that aspect of education one benefits from even haven't paid and does not diminish the amount available for the next person. It is an investment in human beings because it yields economic and social benefits to both the individual in particular and to the society in general. The National Policy on Education (FRN, 2013), sharing this view maintains that "through education the individual acquires appropriate skills and competences that enable him to contribute to the development of the society". The level of education spending overtime in Nigeria remains low. For instance in 2002 the Federal government allocated these percentages to the various levels of institutions: Universities 51.2%, Polytechnics 16.0%, Colleges of Education 9.7, Secondary schools 15.6% and Primary 7.5%.
Education is the life wire and indeed the bedrock of any nation. Schools in Enugu are the foundation of all levels of education hence it cannot be ignored. This is because the foundation of all levels of education starts from the primary school. Schools in Enugu are the education given in an institution for children aged 6 to 11 plus (FRN, 2004). Obanya (2013) observed that education is the first stage of formal education. In the words of Fafanwa (2012), "schools in Enugu are the core of African development even though many African educators would rather give priority to secondary, technical and university education". Education is very essential because it is a place where the proper tomorrow of any individual can and must be built (Ukeje 2016). According to the National Policy on Education (FRN 2004), it moulds the character of a child in all its ramification.
The Local Government Education Authorities (LGEAs) responsibilities include: submission of annual estimates, annual accounts and monthly returns, payment of salaries, allowances and benefits to all the teaching and non - teaching staff, acquisition and distribution of materials and equipment to all public education , undertaking general maintenance of school buildings and infrastructure and stimulating, promoting and encouraging community participation in the running of education  in its area of jurisdiction (SUBEB 2015). Each local government councils in the federation therefore contributes some percentage in the funding of education in their areas of jurisdiction. Following World Bank (2003) funds for schools in Enugu service were provided by each tier of government in 1999; however, about 86 percent of the funds for schools in Enugu came from the local governments' allocation derived from the Federation Account while most of this fund was for teachers' salaries. Federal government provides only small amounts, while the state government contributions appear to have been around 10 to 12 percent (World Bank, 2013).
The policy makers of this nation are conscious of the importance of primary level of education as the first stage where the foundation of education is laid. This is why they brought the administration of schools in Enugu at the grassroots. Thus the LGEAs are responsible for the administration of education at the local government level.
From the foregoing, the situation for modalities for improving local government participation in the funding of education is eminent since one of the goals of creating local government councils is to bring development to every nook and cranny of the nation. The local government councils seem not to be living up to expectations towards the primary level of education; hence this has necessitated the researcher to find out the role of local government in the development of education in Aninir local government area of Enugu state.

Statement of the Problem
The Nigerian education system has witnessed a great deal of transformation in recent time. As the aims and objectives for setting up educational institutions have continued to widen, new subjects have been enlarged to reflect the critical needs of Nigerian society. This expansion implies rise in cost to both the government and the general public. High premium is placed on funding of education, because the success of any project depends, to a large extent, on the availability of funds for the project. In Nigeria local government area education have with problem of inadequate funding and embossment of fund of local government personnel. And one has expected the local government councils to be up and doing with regard to the funding of schools in Enugu but the education are in comfortable ruts.
The situation is not different in Aninri Enugu State. The education in the state, suffer accommodation problems due to lack of funds, lack of teaching materials, such as instructional materials like textbooks due to lack of funds, lack of furniture such as tables, chairs and desks due to lack of funds, do not have enough qualified teachers because of lack of funds, are not effectively supervised due to lack of funds and have salaries and allowances of their teachers delayed because of diversion of money meant for their salaries to other sectors.
By Decree 3 of 1991, the local government councils are entrusted with the management and control of education in their areas. But this arrangement rather than helping matters worsened the situation. This is because most of the chairmen of these councils have little or no knowledge of the educational system. Even the replacement of Decree 3 of 1991 with Decree 96 of 1993, which established the State Schools Board now called State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) did not change the situation positively. This is because of the fact that chairmen who are in - charge of the Board at both the state and local government levels are political appointees who may not have any knowledge of educational management. The implication is that they are not bothered much about the state of the education hence they divert or embezzle the money meant for the sector.
From the foregoing, it is clear that most of the problems confronting schools in Aninri is challenges on funding of education   in Enugu state.

Purpose of the study
