In urban slum part of Lagos, Nigeria, almost all teachers have the same problem which is the problem of retention in the students. Teach they anything today, they cannot reproduce it tomorrow on demand no matter how simple it is. However, ask the same set of students to reproduce the two sides of the latest album of any pop artiste, they will do it better than you expect. This is seriously affecting teaching and learning in schools. Teachers feel bad when such students fail examinations but take trophies and cash awards in songs and choreographic displays.
Please advise teachers on what to do to stimulate students' interest in learning.
