1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

The study of home economics has increased overtime in Nigeria; home economics as a subject play a significant role in the life of many in most of the Nigeria societies.

Home economics can be seen to contribute to life in different ways; home economics as an aspect of vocational and technical education plays significant roles in the growth and development of the national economy through an improved teaching and learning skills.

Home economics as an aspect of vocational education is a skill oriented subject and requires the contributions of both human and material resources.

Home economics as a field of study is divided into three major groups which are:

Over the years there have been series of challenges faced by most teachers in teaching home economics in schools and colleges.
