Nigeria's Educational Sector - Challenges

A society that does not manage its educational sector properly like ours is preparing to increase the level of illiteracy, mediocrity, poverty and chaos in future! The children of the poor who are in the majority and who have been denied the right opportunity and quality education will definitely rise up against the children of these privileged ones and deny them peace later. The future of the so-called rich parents think they are securing for their children is not secured at all.

There are many brilliant pupils in our public schools that can excel at any level if they are provided with the right environment, and the basic resources required performing. Any child will do well academically given the right tools and guidance!

This sector which is one of the basics needed to meet up with the new generation's updates is not well rooted in Nigeria. The challenges that the education system in Nigeria faces are lecturers' weaknesses, government failures, weak practical background, hindrances from institutions, learning environment, crises, non-patriotism, and sentimentalism.

Poverty and fall in Standard

Acquisition of Education knowledge is supposed to help us fight against-poverty, ignorance and disease. The process of acquiring this well desired knowledge has gradually turned money spinning venture for many of those in dire need of the knowledge and skill. It is now a source of exploitation from the service seekers with little or no consideration for quality of service rendered and facilities on ground, and made an offer for the highest bidder. A trend which has cut across all levels of education, from nursery school to tertiary institutions.

Poor Parenting /Guardians

Parenting entails caring, protection, guidance, provision of basic needs for a child up keep in order for him or her to be properly equipped to meet with the challenges of life, in accordance with the laws of the land. In desperation, many parents have decided to bring in additional innovation by way of not only involve in encouraging, but also finance activities in and around examination venues to effect malpractices in order to brighten the chances of their children or wards in qualifying examination to higher institutions and some even progress on this act through the tertiary level of education.
