RADIO SCHOOL , a Mac Arthur funded project is an educational radio programme that delivers quality education to girls and boys in JSS2 in four core subjects (English, Mathematics, Civic Education and Basic Science). By putting curriculum-based lessons on the radio, this project goes a long way to address access to quality education for adolescents.
Lessons are presently,being broadcast,everyday (Monday to Saturday) on Radio Nigeria Medium Wave 828 kHz in Enugu State and on Gotel Radio Yola 917 kHz in Adamawa State. These lessons are pre-recorded in live classroom settings with teachers employing simple, yet effective distance-teaching techniques. At the end of the school day, students are able to call the teachers on (toll-free numbers) if they have any questions about the lessons taught. With the support from state governments, all 292 public schools in Enugu and 150 schools in Adamawa are participating in the project.
