Towards Coping with the Major Contemporary Challenges of the Classroom Teacher in Nigeria

Authors : M.E. Okpilike Felix

Abstract: This study takes a look at the major contemporary challenges that confront the classroom teacher in Nigeria as he discharges his duties. The primary and secondary teacher should faces almost identical problems in the system with the problems of the university and other higher education teacher slightly different but similar. The teacher is primarily faced with the problem of meeting the wide demand and expectation of the pupils and students’ parents and guardians and the society as large but inspite of this unlimited expectations, he works under every poor and unconducive environment; he has no good office to do his study; he has no sufficient classroom to teach his pupils and students; he has no teaching equipment and facilities and above these, he is poorly motivated and is not accorded the respect as with other professions. These challenges, notwithstanding, the teacher owes it a duty to do well. The study therefore, examines these major challenges and suggests ways through which the teacher can become the real teacher and thus more effective to achieve the desired results of his calling.
