Many factors give rise to the formation of Parents Teachers Association (PTA) in Public Secondary Schools in Kwara State. Lacks of school facilities; shortage of manpower, as a result of increase in population of students and inadequate provision of school materials for students necessitate the formation of Parents Teachers Association.

Research questions were analyzed using frequency counts and percentage while the main and operational hypotheses were tested using Pearson product moment correlation statistics at 0.5 level of significance. The methodology of the work is a descriptive correlation survey type.
