The study investigated the perception of secondary school teachers on the UBE programme as an educational reform policy. Relevant literatures were reviewed in the area of study specifically highlighting conceptual frame work, other researchers contributions and current issues in the area of study. About 3 research questions and 2 hypotheses were developed for the study. The population of teachers selected for the study comprised of all secondary school teachers in Uvwie local government area of Delta. About 100 teachers were randomly selected through proportionate stratified random sampling from 5 secondary schools in the local government area. A questionnaire titled Perception of teachers on the UBE with face and content validity with a reliability of 0.71 was used to collect data for the study. While mean analysis was used for the research questions the z-test was used to analyse the hypothesis. The results indicated that teachers have low perception of the UBE. While there is no significant difference between male and female, rural and urban in the perception of teachers on the UBE as an educational reform policy. The conclusion was that teachers seem not be aware of the objectives and the goals of the UBE and also that teachers are not adequately prepared to implement the program. This ultimately will affect the quality and success of the programme. It is therefore recommended that those in the ministry of education that are responsible for the development and implementation of the UBE, should ensure that teachers are well prepared and equipped to participate actively in the implementation of the programme.
