Challenges Faced by Students on Impact of Instructional Materials
            The education sector has been played by various problems while undermined its optimal development over the years. In general terms, the education sector of the Nigeria economy faced (and still faces some of) the following problems:
1.         Public Control and Bureaucracy
            Orji (2003), the post primary schools management board (PPSMB) is controlled by the Education ministry. It lacks autonomy, as a result of which decision taking is often bureaucratic and unnecessarily delayed. Therefore, the operation to the education ministry is characterized by inefficiency. To this end, most instructional materials believed to have been sent to schools are lairs. Media will announce that instructional material have been sent to all the secondary schools whereas most schools will not receive it.
2.         Poor Funding of Schools:
            Agom (2011), poor funding of schools have affected the rate of students learning. The government should endeavour to pay attention to students instructional material to enable the teachers impact the meaningful knowledge required by students. The delay in providing the materials even when the ministry have provided it affects the students.
3.         Employment techniques:
            Aruka (1998); The employment technique in the education sector is biased. Most of the teachers are sub-standard and claims not to have instructional material meant for teaching of students. The ministry should interview thoroughly the applicants before employing them. This will help the ministry to have teachers who are challenging and who are willing to deliver the services. To this end, students will be glad to bend down and learn and, as well compete favourably among themselves.
4.         Corruption:
            Patrick (2011), corruption is everywhere and this affects the teaching pattern in our educational sector. Even when the instructional materials are provided, what most principal does is to package it and sale to those private schools and use the money for their private predicaments. As teachers and students awaits for the instructional materials to guide them in teaching and learning, the principal keeps telling them one reason or the other and this affects students method of learning and teachers means of impacting the knowledge.
5.         Students Inability to Listen to Teaching
            Omebe (2001), modern students are not interested in learning. Even when the instructional materials are not ready, the teacher can decide to make use of the old materials the students may prefer staying out of teaching. This affects students method of earning.
