“Join me as I lead you into the journey of TAB 2023 1. We have designed a questionnaire which would help in getting the data of Igbogbo indigenes in the public primary schools, the best students, the undiscovered ones, the factors affecting the majority, the position of the Igbogbo indigenes and the possible solutions to the identified diminishing factors. This will definitely help in encouraging compulsory quality primary education for all. 2. You will all agree with me that, Today’s students are visual learners, and a field trip or excursion allows them to touch, feel and listen to what they’re learning about, this helps them build on classroom instructions, gain better understanding of topics, build cultural understanding and tolerance, and still exposing them to worlds outside their own. It also allows the kids to get new experiences and observe new things that are not available at school. We would partner with educational agencies to take the best students in our public primary schools on excursions for exposure and practical experiences.”
