ABSTRACT

The main purpose was to find out the availability, adequacy and state of learning resources in the Junior High Schools (JHSs) in the Mfantseman Municipality in the Central Region of Ghana. It further wanted to find out how heads as well as teachers manage these available learning resources. In all 202 teachers and 70 headteachers were involved in the study. The headteachers were requested to answer 50 items whilst the teachers had 49 items. The entire respondents answered closed-ended questions on the availability, adequacy and state of school resources. They further answered questions on how the resources are managed in the JHSs in the Mfantseman Municipality. The main findings were:There were available learning resources in most of the schools and were adequate. Only science equipment were inadequate. The state of learning resources was good with the exception of science equipment. The resources were yearly replaced and inspected once a week.Old existing materials were used when resources are not supplied, resources are mainly kept in the headteachers office and receipt voucher and inventory books are used to take school records. It was concluded that:More learning resources should be supplied to schools to help eliminate the inadequacies in the schools.Both teachers and head teachers should constantly inspect and ensure effective use of learning resources in the schools. It is recommended that Ghana Education Service, head teachers and teachers should regularly maintain and replace outmoded learning resources in the schools.
