The Role of Nigerian Teachers and Parents: A Pre- Requisite for Efficient and Dynamic Curriculum Development

  • RF Adebile

Abstract

The non-challant attitudes of the Nigerian teachers and parents to the
challenges of curriculum development and educational achievement have
created a great gap between the school-teaching-learning programme and
the achievement of educational goals. The instrument and strength of change
for sustainable development, stable educational policies, and viable
educational achievement depends on the virtues of competent professionally
dynamic teachers, parental sensitivity to the child’s academic needs and the
government concern about the dynamic nature of the society and the
curriculum that will satisfy the aims and the goals of education. The Nigerian
teachers and parents have strategic roles to play, being the prime executors
of the government policies on education, through the curriculum. As such,
the operational performance of teachers and parents could make or mar the
future of Nigeria learners. Efficient and dynamic curriculum development for
functional and qualitative teaching outcome will bring new challenges and
improvement in the production of self-reliant citizens.
