This study examined the measures to be adopted in staff recruitment and development in Enugu State
Secondary Schools for the attainment of millennium development goals. To guide the study two research questions and two null hypotheses were used. A descriptive survey research design was adopted and a 15 items questionnaire developed by the researcher was used for collection of data. The population for the study comprised of all principals and Enugu State Universal Basic Education Board (ESUBEB) staff in the state. The sample consisted of 540 respondents using proportionate stratified random sampling technique. Mean ratings and t test statistics were used in answering the research questions and testing the null hypothesis. The findings of the study revealed that the measures identified should be followed strictly in order to attain the millennium development goals. The recommendations among others were that there should be clearly defined standard for staff recruitment, tribalism favouritism and political influence should be avoided in the training and retraining of teachers as well as its recruitment to ensure very rapid professional growth of teachers in Enugu State Secondary Schools.
