Forward For Her Education Nigeria At 50

It is no longer news that the pace of disappointment in the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and the National Examinations Council (NECO) tests; the two principal assessments understudies need to attempt for fruitful culmination of optional school, and to fit the bill for entrance into higher establishments of learning, have expanded massively throughout the long term. The level of disappointment as Nigeria turned fifty this year is so disturbing as more than 70% of understudies who embraced the previously mentioned assessments bombed Mathematics and English Language; the two significant subjects an understudy should pass to get conceded into most courses in higher establishments. An inquiry should be posed; should our schooling area improve or decline as a country?

These new occasions have affirmed the cold-heartedness of those put accountable for our schooling area in the beyond couple of years to the spoiled idea of the area. Every one of the leaders in the area raise their own strategies when they expect power, and this has prompted the precariousness of our schooling as new schedule and styles are utilized each time there is another chief in the area. Adequately entertaining, the ongoing Minister for Education following the new disappointment of understudies in Secondary School Certificate Examinations (SSCE), recommended that the quantity of oppressed presented in these assessments could be decreased from nine (9) to five (5) as she trusted the colossal idea of the vast majority of these subjects could have been liable for the understudies’ disappointment. Unfortunately, we might get up tomorrow and figure out that her viewpoint has turned into a regulation. I firmly can’t help contradicting her perspective and I accepted some good natured Nigerians would do same. At fifty, I accept Nigeria would have hit the nail on the head, in some measure in this significant area, yet clearly, we haven’t.

We as a whole accept that young people are the heads of tomorrow. Tragically, we are scarcely successfully guarantee that what’s to come is splendid. Instruction is something beyond educating, perusing, and passing assessments. Maybe, that is where we failed to understand the situation. In the event that Nigeria will accomplish anything extraordinary, more consideration should be given to the instructive area. However, we may not require teachers to fabricate this area as we as a whole skill degenerate the world has gotten, and anyone might have turned into a teacher using any and all means I stand to be rectified. We really want individuals who are enthusiastic about the fate of Nigeria, individuals who might be prepared to neglect their solace for the good of the country, individuals who are visionary. We want pioneers, not chiefs. Pioneers work by vision, Managers work by sight.

Our schooling system is clearly setting out toward destruction and our country’s future in risk in the event that individuals who grasp schooling as the educating and preparing of the psyche and character, and not simply finishing tests are not permitted to run it. Saving our schooling is the best way to save Nigeria’s future. The future chiefs need to understand what’s genuinely going on with administration, their personality needs constructing. This should be possible through instruction. We should save our schooling from the savaging leaders.

I couldn’t say whether I’m the one in particular who has seen that not just the leaders are killing our schooling, the corporate bodies aren’t helping by the same token. In times past, schools used to be fascinating for the splendid understudies that different understudies endeavor to be preferable over them in different things in order to figure out some kind of harmony. This was the manner by which extraordinary men in different fields were brought into the world before. There used to be a few challenges and contests that saw a solid contention create among understudies, and that drew out the best in a large number.

There is a sickness in Nigeria now that would see corporate bodies and people do just things others are as of now doing. Perhaps it was existent then and most likely to that end there were many organizations supporting numerous contests in schools. The spotlight moved to diversion a few years back and it had been challenging for our schooling area since as a few ability chase shows and challenges arise everyday with enormous corporate bodies as supporters. Practically all organizations getting along nicely and supporting things in their rewarding the-general public arrangement has spurned the instructive area. Youngsters win a large number of Naira in a few ability chase shows the nation over and their partners battling to stay aware of the test of zeroing in on training in spite of interruptions from the sides are blown away. No one is by all accounts sitting tight for what the future will bring assuming they continue to do well in their schooling whenever there is a chance of winning millions in the event that you can exhibit your ability. The time of educative challenges and shows appear to be disappearing. We currently hear titles like “21 year old successes N2.5 million in ability chase show”. MTN’s “Who needs to be a Millionaire?” appear to be the most well known and most remunerating educative show left, yet what number of youngsters in the 16-25 age range has won something significant on the show?

Adolescents appear to be losing it. There are books of general information, inspirational books, and the preferences. What number of have you purchased over the most recent three years as a young? There are associations with educative projects like syndicated programs, challenges, and so on. Have they at any point gotten an opportunity to get great supporters? A few young people showed me the outline of their association and I was dazzled to realize there are still young people who have a great deal higher up. Unfortunately, I’ve not had the option to connect them with a support from that point forward.

I’m not saying the ability chase is terrible, nor am I saying it ought to be halted. I’m simply a crusader for change who accepts we could involve more backers in the instructive area to help coordinated exposition rivalries, subject tests, verse challenges, and so on. We should do our absolute best with instructing the adolescents and watch what is the fate of our extraordinary country.
