Inequalities of Access to Personal Security by Students' and Role of Science/Technology Education Curriculum for a Democratic Society

Anthony Odera Unamma, Imo State University Owerri. (Nigeria)



This article is concerned with the strategies by which through teachings, reflections, and learning in science/teaching education in school classrooms we can build the capacity of students to respond to a variety of security issues in Nigeria. Descriptive survey research design was used to gather data from students, staff and security personnel’s (120, 40, and 28). It was found out that security problems of students differed in regions on analyzing the mean scores of data obtained from report in criminal departmental records and student’s security problems scale. In this paper therefore, a case is made for improving on the content of the schools science education curriculum in such a way that adequate instructional strategies are channeled towards making all students enjoy personal security in a democratic society. The implication of this to curriculum development is not farfetched, when the experiences of Chibok girls; Christian/Muslims killed while in their places of worship; and traders in market due to lack of security personnel’s and working instruments are still fresh in our minds.

Keywords: Inequalities, Students, Security, Curriculum.
