Nnane Peter Ebontane is an Associate Professor of Educational Administration, with a leaning on Educational Finance. He has particular interest in tertiary education and to a limited extent, secondary and basic education in Cameroon.
With regard to tertiary education, the researcher’s publications have been based on unit costs, improving on the use of time, the link between student achievement and staff qualification, choosing a career, fulfilling the research mission in state universities in Cameroon, and equity in the allocation of subvention to the state universities. As regards secondary and basic education, the researcher has equally worked on issues of equity in the distribution of human resources.
Furthermore, the researcher, of recent, has developed interest in inclusive education as it relates to policy implications. In this connection, he published on “Handicapism – the case of the hearing impaired in schools in Cameroon: implications for planning and policy”.
