Abstract

The bed rock of any developed country lay on Science, Technology and Mathematics Education (STME), as effective factors for economic growth of a country. The paper discussed factors preventing learning of STME in selected secondary schools of three senatorial zones in Niger state of Nigeria.  A simple random sampling (SRS) were used to select a total of 500 teachers and 1,000 students for the study, using  the Four point Likert Scale method of responses i.e. Strongly Agree (SA), Agree (A), Disagree (D), Strongly and Disagree (SD) which weighted as 4, 3, 2 and 1 respectively in the questionnaires. The study was guided four (4) research questions and two (2) hypotheses. Average Mean Score and standard deviation were used to analyze responses from the research questions, while Regression Analysis was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The dependent variable correlated significantly positive with the independent variable for both hypotheses. F-statistics of 42.825 had a p-value of 0.000 (<0.05) and F-statistics of 4.461 had a p-value of 0.000 (<0.05) respectively. Recommendations were made based on these findings.
