It is not for fun that the Akwa Ibom state government decided to provide a whopping N1billion to overhaul the physical infrastructure of our educational institutions under the 2021 interministerial direct labour jobs. Research has found that learning environments play a crucial role in student success. Several factors can affect learning ability, including seating, light, noise, and even colour.

Students who study in a positive learning environment have been shown to be more motivated, engaged, and have a higher overall learning ability. On the other hand, students learning in poor environments – those that are uncomfortable, loud, or full of distractions – will find it far more difficult to absorb information and stay engaged.
