The purpose of this study was to asses community contributions to
business studies in public secondary school in Awka Education Zone.
Descriptive survey research design was adopted. Five research questions
guided the study while three null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of
significance. The population of the study comprised 117 respondents made
up 64 principals and 53 town union presidents in Awka Education Zone.
There was no sampling since the population was not too large. A
researcher-developed instrument duly validated by experts was used for
data collection. Mean statistics was used to answer research questions
while and while the z-test was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of
significance. The findings of the study are as follows: Community
contributes ‘high’ in funding the building of business studies classrooms
and in funding of the purchase of typewriting pools. Community
contributes ‘low’ in mobilizing sufficient funds for execution of business
studies projects, supplementing the budgetary allocation to business
studies programme and in donating funds for effective financing of
business studies programme. Community contributions could be enhanced
through proper financial accountability, dealing with every act of financial
fraud, encouraging communities to participate in the execution of school
projects and through internal auditing of funds. In line with these findings,
it has been recommended that principals in Anambra State secondary
schools should encourage community contributions towards teaching and
learning of business subjects through proper accountability.
