Abstract

The success or failure of any educational programme depends on the effectiveness of its curriculum implementation by the teachers. Hence this paper focused on the curriculum implementation challenges to the new social studies education teacher. The issue of the unique nature of the social studies teacher and vile / uninterested students were first discussed. The paper exhaustively looked at the major challenges before the teacher towards curriculum implementation and finally some suggestions were made such as organizing proper orientations for both the teachers and students to change the vile behaviours; recruitment should be passed on both paper qualification and aptitude test; private sector participation in funding the schools etc.
