CHAPTER ONE

 

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

 

Gesidle S. A. (1987) defined home economics as a sequence of occupations, jobs, and positions held by an individual over the course of his or her working life. By pursuing a in home economics, one is essentially attempting to acquire knowledge of occupational opportunities available in their social environment.

This involves a decision that goes beyond the individual’s bibliography. But if the individual acquires the fundamental skills that will enable them to adapt to social and economic change in their daily lives, they will be able to reach their desired objective.

 

Home economics is a relatively new field of y, and it is still experiencing difficulties in establishing itself. Its major problem is employment opportunities and the rapidly changing role of the family in education in Nigeria. An investigation was conducted on the effectiveness of the system of vocational training, and it was recommended that boys and girls be given equal opportunity to y home economics, and the need was emphasized to increase and extend home economics as a to all schools and levels.

 

In the minds of many, pursuing a in home economics is a matter of integrating academic discipline with real-world circumstances through the use of the subject area. According to Jaiye Via (1979), our youth require constant guidance in their and subject choices. It is common knowledge that ents choose subjects or s based on aptitude rather than genuine interest.

 

Such ents must accept the possibility of failure and, of course, disappointment. Makinde (1978) observed that in a simple society with little diversity, the choice of a did not require a great deal of specialized assistance; parents and friends could provide adequate guidance to a person who must choose a from several familiar options.

 

In traditional societies, children were taught by their parents; however, with the advent of formal education, the situation has changed, and most parents have a limited understanding of the prevailing conditions in schools, as well as the variety of available care options.

 

Academics and vocational training have made 3rd choice more difficult; therefore, greater care must be taken to avoid frustration, which may vary depending on the choice.
