What is the view of teachers on the suitability of Clothing and Textiles classroom environment when classified in school categories? 2. What is the view of students on the suitability of Clothing and Textiles classroom environment when compared according to school categories? and the hypothesis H01: There is no statistical significant difference in the conduciveness of school environment when students are classified according to school options” was tested. An Evaluation research design was used in this study with a quantitative approach. A multistage sampling method (stratified, purposive and simple random techniques) were used to sample twenty-three teachers and four hundred and seventy-eight students from sixteen schools. The study revealed that, teachers and students disagreed (M=2.37, SD=.96) and (M=1.47, SD=.66) respectively that, clothing and Textiles classroom environment was conducive for studying. The null hypothesis was rejected at a computed significant value of 0.05. It is recommended that, Ministry of Education and Ghana education service should provide schools with adequate, efficient and modern classrooms and state-of-the-art Clothing and Textiles laboratories.
