Abstract – This study investigated the impediments on the implementation of Computer Science Education (CSE) curriculum in public secondary schools in Osun state, Nigeria. It assessed the extent to which CSE curriculum had been implemented in Osun State public secondary schools. It also determined the availability and quality of computer teachers in public secondary schools in the State. It further determined the availability of computer facilities in public secondary schools in the state and examined stake-holders attitude towards the non-implementation of CSE curriculum in public schools in the State. 60 teachers were randomly selected from the six educational zones in the State.
