Abstract


The study assessed administrators’ effectiveness in institutionalizing peace education in secondary schools in Calabar Metropolis of Cross River State. To achieve the purpose, two null hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. Ex-post facto design was adopted for the study. Intact population was used because the population was not too large to warrant randomization. Data collection was carried out with the use of researchers’ constructed instrument titled Administrators Effectiveness in Institutionalizing Peace Education Questionnaire (HEIPEQ). The instrument was validated and reliability was established through a trial test using Cronbach coefficient alpha with obtained range from 0.68 - 0.91. These figures are a confirmation that the instrument is reliable in achieving the objectives of this research. Data collected were analyzed using population t-test of one sample mean and independent t-test statistical technique. Results obtained revealed that administrators’ (principals) effectiveness in institutionalizing peace education is low in Calabar Metropolis. Secondly, administrators’ effectiveness in institutionalizing peace education is not influenced by gender. Based on the findings and discussion, conclusions were made. It was recommended that administrators’ (principals) should integrate peace education in already existing activities to increase the knowledge, skills, attitude, and behaviour pattern.
