Abstract: This paper presents initial findings from an ongoing ethnographic study carried out among Normal Technical students from a secondary one class in a typical neighbourhood school since the start of the 2005 school year. Assertions about the social organization of the classroom and how this relates to teacherstudent interaction provide us a window into some of the classroom management issues and conditions for learning that emerge in the N(T) classroom. Specifically, this paper focuses on the perspectives of the students in the program. The ‘silent’ lot, although a minority, is a group of students that needs to be helped so that they can become productive and contributing individuals to the society at large. They need to be given equal learning opportunities to enable them to maximize their learning potential.
