Abstract

As the nation scrambles for solution to the decline in quality and access to education, field trip has been presented as an alternative to improving quality, inclusive and equitable education system. The specific objective of the study is to present the relevance of field trip in education and the current state of the strategy in some selected secondary schools in Yola, Adamawa state. The researchers made use of descriptive research design and simple random sampling technique as well as simple descriptive statistics to collect data and analyse result to arrive at its findings. A total of 300 respondents from six (6) secondary schools were randomly selected to respond to questionnaire. Findings from the study revealed low participation, lack of laid down guidelines or policy from related authorities as well as several challenges hampering the adoption of the strategy among schools. Several locations of educational values suitable for field trips within the study area have also been identified. The researchers recommend the full adoption of the strategy for all institutions of learning, development of relevant guide and policy frame works as well as the need for increased emphasis in the use of the strategy while producing teachers in our teachers’ training institutions.
