CULTURAL AND CREATIVE ARTS AS A SUBJECT IN NIGERIAN SECONDARY SCHOOLS: ISSUES AND PANACEA (A CASE STUDY OF SCHOOLS IN ENUGU METROPOLIS)

 

 

Abstract

This paper seeks to examine the progress made so far by the integration of Music, Fine Arts and Drama as one subject known as Cultural and Creative Arts (CCA) in the Nigerian educational system. Using selected secondary schools in Enugu metropolis as a case study, the paper observes, among other things, that CCA is a core subject in schools since its inception in 2007, and as such, compulsory for all the students in the junior secondary level. Other findings also reveal that not all CCA teachers are competent for adequate instructions on the 3 branches of the subject because they, themselves, did not receive such training. Inadequate time allocation to the subject in the schools’ period of work, as well as the scanty representations of each of the 3 aspects of the subject (especially music) in their schemes of work are also issues of worry. The paper therefore recommends, among other things, that CCA teachers should undergo some training on CCA as a subject so that the aims for and the objectives of this integration will be achieved.  The field and laboratory method were used in carrying out this research. Denudating the Influence of Cultural and Creative Studies as a Subject in the Nigerian Education System
