Abstract

This paper presents an analysis of the Nigerian National Policy for Information Technology. The analysis reveals that the policy is inadequate to impact positively on the Nigerian education system, and that the philosophical frame of reference is market driven. The policy places little emphasis on the integration and infusion of ICT in the country's education system. Policy implications and suggestions are offered to ensure maximum use of ICT potentials in the Nigerian school system.
