Abstract: The study investigated the perceived impact of public-private partnership initiative (PPPI) on the management of Federal Government Unity Colleges in the North-Central Geo-political Zone of Nigeria. The study was guided by eight research questions and eight hypotheses. Literature was reviewed under theoretical framework, conceptual framework, empirical studies, and summary. Eight school management variables of funding, provision of school infrastructural facilities, staff development, instructional supervision, school security, students’ discipline, school climate, and motivation of teachers, were identified and reviewed. The study employed the descriptive survey research design. The population for the study was 2,866, comprising 24 principals, 2,602 teachers, and 240 Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) officials in the 24 federal government unity colleges in the zone. A sample of 18 federal unity colleges was purposively drawn and proportionate stratified random sampling technique was used to select the respondents. A total of 712 respondents which comprised18 principals, 640 teachers, and 54 PTA officials supplied data for the study. A 48-item structured questionnaire titled “Public-Private Partnership Initiative and Management of Unity Colleges Questionnaire (PPPIMUCQ)”, and an interview schedule comprising 8 questions on the school management variables, were used as instruments for data collection. The instruments were validated by four specialists in Educational Management and Measurement and Evaluation. The questionnaire was trial tested to measure its reliability which yielded a Crombach Alpha Coefficient of 0.75; which was considered high enough for use for the study. Mean and Standard Deviation were employed to answer the research questions while Chi-Square was used to test the null hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The data from the interview schedule were analyzed using content and logical analysis techniques. The findings of the study indicated that there was no significant impact of PPPI on the management of the Federal Government Unity Colleges in the North-Central Geo-political Zone of Nigeria in the areas of school funding, infrastructural facilities provision, staff development, instructional supervision, school security, school climate, and motivation of teachers. The results however, showed a significant impact of PPPI in the area of students’ discipline. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended among other things, that government should encourage active public-private partnerships in managing the federal government unity colleges through favorable policies such as tax rebates or tax holidays to private sector organizations, and mass sensitization to enable the stakeholders to understand the value of public-private partnerships in school management. It was also recommended thatformal partnership arrangements be made between the schools and private sector organizations and individuals with the mutual benefits derivable by each partner clearly outlined, and those who participate actively in school management towards improving performances in the schools should be appropriately rewarded for their effort in order to encourage others.
