This is because teacher education is a very complex enterprise.

The teachers are recognized as the main pills of our educational system.

            The government is one of the subject been study in secondary schools which deals with law, authority and law enforcement in any given society, i.e the group of people who control and make decision for a country, state etc.

            In higher institution, it is called political science under the discipline of arts and social science. Harold (2002) a professor of government and history, gets a bit more specific with his definition. He says that government is “ responsible primarily for making public policy for an entire society”. He also mentions that government is “The steering mechanism of a given society. Government as a subject has become very important because it is a general requisite for all secondary school students in art and social science irrespective of the area of carrier they want to pursuit in future. The performance of students in a particular subject area, as the cases may be could be attributed to a lot of factors. Performance of students in government as a subject may also be attributed to the social- economic background.
