THE PROBLEM OF EPILEPTIC POWER SUPPLY ON THE EFFECT OF BASIC TECHNOLOGY IN NIGERIA

 

           

TThis study talks about the problem of epileptic power supply on the effect of basic technology in junior secondary schools. It also talks about some of the importance of basic technology, as a subject that introduces students at the Junior Secondary schools in Nigeria to the basic rudiment of technology. The National Policy on Education (2004) described it as the aspect of education which leads to acquisition of practical and applied skills as well as basic scientific knowledge. The issue of epileptic power supply in the Nigerian junior secondary schools has been a major concern, not just to the citizens, but also to the government and institutions which makes teaching and learning of basic technology very difficult in our society. The study concluded that it was observed that students do not perform well in the Junior Secondary School Certificate Examination (JSSCE) because of the epileptic power nature in the country. It was therefore recommended that the government should provide stable power supply as well as explore other sources of electricity in the country, so that it will in turn improve the teaching and learning of basic technology in our junior secondary schools.
