This study investigated the Status of management and administration strategies on teacher education in South-South geopolitical zones. The descriptive survey design was used for the study. The population for the study from one Federal University of Education, one State University of Education, and one College of Education was 600. A simple random sampling technique was used to draw 42 principal officers (managers) and 81 heads of department administration from the three universities of education representing 20% of the population. Three research questions and three hypotheses guided the study. A self-designed questionnaire title Status of Management and Administration Strategies on Teacher Education Questionnaire (SMASSTEQ)” was used to collect data. The instrument which was validated by 2 lecturers from the department of education management Uniport used a four-point Likert scale. A test retest method was used to determine the reliability of the study to be 0.85 at 0.05 level of significance. Mean and rank order statistics were used to answer the research questions while, standard deviation and Z-test were used to test the hypotheses. From the findings, it was revealed that the criteria for measuring effectiveness indices are teacher productivity, commitment, participation and innovation; the constraints to management and administration strategies are poor funding indiscipline etc while strategies for repositioning teacher education are adequate funding, establishing professional ethics etc. the researcher therefore recommended that, there should be regular evaluation of teachers productivity, commitment, participation and innovation; teacher education should be adequately funded; and professional ethics should be a watch word.
