IMPACT OF CULTURE/TRADITION ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION FOR GIRLS IN SOKOTO STATE
This paper sets out first to review the positive and negative impact of Culture and Tradition as regards the development of Vocational Education for girls and secondly to suggest possible ways of marrying culture and tradition of the society to the curriculum of vocational education. Culture is seen as refined understanding and appreciation of customs, arts, social institutions o f a particular society while tradition is the passing of the beliefs, customs from one generation to the next, so culture and tradition go together. On the other hand, according to UNESCO (1974), vocational education, has three components: general education, professional training and continuing education. It is therefore a wide area which is not limited to one aspect alone it involves a very high intellectual ability as well as healthy body to cope with it unlike the impression being generated that it is a field for dropouts and less able students (Ehiametalor, 1989).
