In most of primary schools in northern Nigeria overcrawdness is one of the problems that makes learning not suitable, a classroom that can contain twenty pupils will be filled with more than one hundren pupils or even two hundred pupils in some schools. As a result of that it will be difficult for a teacher to control the class, there for some of the pupils will end up playing instead of learning, and if the teacher is not well qualified he/she will be confused of the method to be apply in such class, the pupils will end up knowing nothing but wasting their time of primary school going age.

In Nigerian primary schools most especially in the northern Nigerian boys and girls are mixed, although they sit seprately, in a classroom the girls are arranged in one sides and the boys in the other side, in all primary schools both the private and public schools both gender are found in one class. Immediately after the primary they will be separated s they are moving to junior secondry , but in most private schools they would still remain mixed even in the secondary. And also in colleges and universities the students are mixed.
