This study tested the hypotheses that there are no significant differences in the nature of the curriculum, supportive Human and material resources and Grade 12 Examination Results in Woodwork and Geometrical Drawing between Secondary Technical and Multitrack Secondary Schools. The sample consisted four boarding male Secondary Schools out of a population of ten. Guided partly by the case study model advocated by Robert State (1969), questionnaires and structured interviews were designed to compare input in planning and developing the curriculum, supportive Human and material resources and the output in terms of scholarstic outcomes in woodwork and Geometrical Drawing at Grade 12 Examination level between Secondary Technical and Multitrack Secondary Schools. Data were analysed through percentages,cross tabulation procedures and contigency tables. The Chi-square was finally used to statistically test hypotheses on material resources and examination results.The overal analysis showed that there are no significant differences between theoretical inputs in the nature of the carriculum, provision of Human and material resources and the output in Grade 12 examination results in Woodwork and Geometrical Drawing between the two types of Secondary Schools.
