This research work studied the teachers’ perception of corporate social responsibility intervention and its effectiveness in Ogbia metropolis secondary schools, Bayelsa State. The research work was survey research, and purposive sampling technique was used as the population consisted of schools that have benefitted from corporate social responsibility intervention within Ogbia metropolis. Four schools were randomly selected.
A questionnaire titled TPCSRI was designed, validated and administered to fifty (50) teachers who constituted the respondents from the selected schools. The data collated were analysed using frequency, mean and simple percentage. The results indicated that most CSR intervention instances available in secondary schools are in the form of provision of physical/material resources; it also showed that CSR intervention has been effective in benefitting schools; that CSR intervention has never been adequate to cater for the secondary schools; and that the intervention actually reflected on the students´ academic performance.
Hence, most organizations see corporate social responsibility as a discretionary activity rather than a compulsory one. Government should by means of regulation enforce all organizations to embark on corporate social responsibility as a matter of compulsion. Government could also promulgate a law that will see certain percentage of the monies meant for CSR intervention coming into the education sector.
