Brief Information About The Journal

Zaria journal of Educational Studies (ZAJES) is the official Journal of the Federal College of Education. Zaria, Nigeria. It was first published in 1988 when the College wasan arm of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. It has since then served and continues to serve as an important forum for seasoned and fledgling academics and practitioners in the different fields of education to publish their research findings, thoughts as well as reactions to earlier findings and practices. Recognizing the high standard of the Journal, the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) of Nigeria began to sponsor the production of its issues in 2010.

Articles which address any issue within the broad discipline of Education are published in the journal. To facilitate location of papers by readers, papers dealing with similar theme are put close together. As a result, the papers in the journal are usually grouped under five broad disciplines of arts and social science education, language and literature education, science and mathematics education, trends and innovation in education, and vocational and technical education.

Good as the ideas and opinions enunciated in the issues of Journal might seem however, they neither represent the thoughts and feelings of the Publisher nor the Editorial Board; they are entirely those of the writers.
