The paper investigated dividends of security in managing education for the attainment of sustainable development goals in Anambra State, Nigeria. Three research questions were answered and a null hypothesis tested. The population was all principals and teachers in Anambra State. Post Primary Schools Service Commission (P.P.S.S.C.) numbering 5,566 200 respondents consisting of 50 principals and 150 teachers were used. A structured self-developed questionnaire was used for data collection. Data were analysed with mean and t-test at .05 level of significance. Major findings of the study included teacher-related problems caused by lack of security, principals-related problems of insecurity and strategies towards realizing sustainable development goals. The study concluded that effective security will go a long way in helping the attainment of Sustainable Development Goals. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others the need for better funding of security projects and sensitization of the public to be more security conscious because security demands collective efforts for it to be effective.
