The components of a system and the Nigerian schools as a system have
been highlighted. Management of information and data using computers
in the Nigerian school, their importance and significant have been
identified. The adoption of integrated payroll system and primary
utilization of computer to store data are found to be the major
areas where computer function most in the Nigerian School system.
The authors viewed administrative imagination, lack of training
programmes and poor funding as the major problems militating against
the ultimate utilization of computer in the Nigerian schools.
