8.7 Problems facing the LRC

Various problems face the LRC and hinder its use for effective use in enriching instruction. Some of these include:

  • Availability of personnel of the right caliber. Currently, there are very few media specialists and support staff and appointments leave a lot to be desired.
  • Limited funds prohibit the establishment of an LRC in schools and zones.
  • Many schools do not have adequate space to house an LRC’s sophisticated activities.
  • Time factor. The school day is only so long as is the school year.
  • The attitude of the teaching staff has tended to be negative. Teachers tend to fear anything technological being introduced in teaching.
