Overview

A Study Of Blind Education In Three States Of Nigeria by David Oyebamiji Akanji

Despite policies to provide equal education opportunities for African children, the dreams of most disabled students are not realized, especially for blind children. Many blind students do not have an opportunity to continue their education. In this study, The Management of the Education of Blind and Visually Impaired Students in Nigeria's State Capitals of Kwara, Lagos, and Plateau, author David Oyebamiji Akanji investigates the problems facing the education of the blind in Nigerian public schools.

Researched as part of a doctoral dissertation, this study assessed the:

  • Quality and effectiveness of practices governing the management of blind education in self-contained schools
  • Quality and effectiveness of policies and practices governing the inclusion of blind and visually impaired students in the regular classrooms of mainstream schools
  • Unique nature of the problems hampering the academic performance of blind and visually impaired students in three most populous state capitals in Nigeria
  • Obstacles associated with self-concept of blind and visually impaired students

Oyebamiji Akanji shares his research strategy, results, and recommendations. He reveals that the management of blind education in Nigeria public schools requires adequate policies, proper education for teachers, availability of appropriate educational resources, and collaboration among general and special education teachers.
