INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Education is viewed as the process of inviting truth and possibility. It is the wise, hopeful and respectful cultivation of learning undertaken in the belief that all should have the chance to share in life. Dewey, J. (1938). Learning is both a process and an outcome. As a process it is part of living in the world, part of the way our bodies work. As an outcome it is a new understanding or appreciation of something. According to Doyle, 1986; Classroom Management is involves the actions and strategies used by teachers to solve the problem of order in classrooms. Effective teachers employ rules, procedures, and routines to facilitate student’s participation in learning (Marzano, Marzano, & Pickering, 2003). In essence, class room management is employed not only to control student behavior but to influence and direct it towards effective learning in the class room. (McLeod, Fisher, & Hoover, 2003). The successful management of the class room is achieved through the application of the guidelines established for its operation, its users, and its physical elements. When teachers have little control over issues such as temperature and leaky ceilings, they can significantly affect the operation of their classrooms by managing and organizing it so that students to contribute positively and productively to class room learning. James H. Stronge, Pamela D. Tucker and Jennifer L. Hindman (2004). The study seeks to appraise class room administration of primary school instructional structure in obio-akpor.
