welfare of teachers among the public and private primary schools. The

eighty four was drawn from a population of eighty (80,000) thousand. The
researcher used stratified and proportionate sampling technique in the
selection of sample. Test items were used. The answers obtained from five
research questions and five hypotheses were tested. The statistical

because the researcher used two research instruments. The first
statistical technique was used to analyze the scores of the pupils of public and
private primary schools. The findings showed that there were no significant
differences in the academic performance of male and female pupils in social
studies in public and private primary schools. Chi-square was also used to
test the other three research hypotheses and it was discovered that there were
no significant differences in terms of school facilities and teacher welfare in
public and private primary schools. However, based on the data collected and
analyzed, it was found that private primary schools are having more qualified
teachers than the public primary schools. Based on the research findings, the
researcher made some recommendations, among which are: government

greater input to the teaching/learning activities, and create a forum where all
stakeholders in the business of education will be meeting to discuss areas of
problems in primary education in the state and proper solutions to the
problems.
