These three were further subdivided into local government education authorities (LGEA‟s) were stratified into Schools ( Private and Public Schools). Apart from descriptive statistics of the demographic characteristics of the respondents, hypotheses were tested using χ2 and Z statistics. A log-linear model was fitted to examine the existence of higher order interactions ( more than two variables) among variables.
