Introduction

The popular saying that “no nation can develop above the level of its education” has become a reoccurring statement in many nation’s school curriculum. But the way and manner in which teachers’ implement the school curriculum in their classrooms to ensure proper synergy among different developmental elements such as social, technological, political and economic factors have been a major challenge.
