INTRODUCTION

Every society yearns for progress. Its cultural heritage is the assets it harnesses for such progression. Nigeria, like any other nation, has its own culture and traditions of which it passes from one generation to the other in form of traditional education.

But with the advent of Western Education, and the need to take a full advantage of it, Nigeria summoned a National Curriculum Conference in 1969 which eventually gave birth to what is  referred to today as the National Policy on Education (N.P.E).

The policy was formulated to provide uniform education in  the Nigerian multi-ethnic society, and to promote unity, democracy and host of other virtues. Thus the policy constitutes a guiding principle that  dictates both the contents and method by which the learning experiences could be imparted successfully.
