Abstract

The study investigated the challenges facing the implementation of science programs in FCT Secondary schools, Abuja, Nigeria. The questionnaire was adopted for the study by the researchers. We used a descriptive survey design for the study. Simple sampling methods were used to select 140 respondents from the entire population of science teachers in FCT, Abuja. The reliability of the instrument was determined through the use of test and re-test method. Mean, simple percentage, and chi-square were used to analyze and test the hypotheses. Data/information were collected and analyzed. The result collected from the study led to the conclusion that the majority of the sampled respondents agreed that inadequate science teachers, inadequate funding, inadequate infrastructural facilities, inadequate instructional materials, poor planning, and ineffective supervision are the challenges to the implementation of science program in FCT Secondary schools, Abuja. Based on these findings, the researchers recommend that the government should increase the funding of science education in FCT.
