The essence of the project research is to assess the problems facing students of higher institution of learning in ABSU Abia state and to ascertain the problems.
The study was designed with descriptive survey method and library techniques and also questionnaires. Interview and library materials were used in collecting data. A test retest techniques was used in testing for reliability of the instrument. A research question was passed and the understated hypothesis tested with chi-square method management staff makes decision without pre and discussion and consultations with students
This chapter examines the current state of higher education in developing countries, and considers the new realities these countries face and how they are reshaping their response to Ongoing challenges. In the past decades, developing countries have witnessed a rapid expansion of higher education, the simultaneous differentiation of higher education institutions into new forms, and the increasing importance of knowledge for social and economic development. We focus on issues affecting most developing countries, exceptions exist, but should not affect the main thrust of our argument. In subsequent chapters, we explore the strategies and initiative that are needed to meet these challenges.
GENERAL BACKGROUND OF THE SUBJECT MATTER
Many of the problem involving higher education are roof in a lack of resources e.g. developing countries spend far less than developed countries on each student. But finding new finds is not easy. Although absolute spending is low, developing countries are already spending a higher proportion of their (smaller) incomes than developed world on higher education. With public spending for education growing more quickly than income or total government spending. Higher education is clearly placing greater demands on public budgets, with the private sector and international donors taking up only some of the slack. Redirecting money from primary or secondary education is rarely on option, with spending per student on higher education already, considerably higher than is common at other levels of the education system.
In addition, capital and operating budgets are poorly coordinated often major new facilities are built, but then are left with no funds for operation and maintenance. The developing world is littered with deteriorating buildings, inadequate libraries, computer laboratories that are rarely open and scientific equipment that cannot be used for want of supplies and parts. It is often impossible to carry over unspent found is for use in later years, and difficult to win a budget that is high than the previous year’s actual expenditure. This creates a user it or lose it environment, resulting in overspending and misspend resources.
The disappearance of research agenda from these universities ahs serious consequences. The inability to pursue research isolates the nation’s elite scholars and scientists leaving them unable to keep up with developments in their own fields. A research universities lose their ability to act as reference points for the rest of the education system countries quickly find it harder to make key decision about the international issue affecting them.
