Which is Which Nigeria: Quality of Quantity Education?
How can we classify
the present system of education in our country Nigeria, as a
gambling, try your luck or what it is supposed to be?
The system of
education in this present Nigeria has become a thing of total
discouragement, where there is present of quantity instead of
quality education. Our primary school have become a breeding
ground for future hackney’s and hawkers while our secondary
school system have become a play ground and training ground for
future criminals instead of a center of learning. Our secondary
students now see studying and hard working as a waste of time,
when they know that with their money they can buy both WAEC and
NECO exams out.
In most of the
Secondary Schools now there is a special class called the "A1"
class meant for those who are financially capable, they have the
guarantee of excelling in their exams no matter the situation.
The Schools organize this A1 class. Those found in this class
are never invigilated during exams and are given helpers who
will solve the problem for them. At the end a very good and
brilliant result awaits, what faith? Which is which quality or
On JAMB, it has
become a casino affair only those who are lucky enough are
passed. JAMBS have a set out number on those to be passed and
failed, those whose result are to be withheld and then those who
came from a very influential background, who are never failed.
On our Universities
it has not been easy as strike and unpaid salary has threaten to
destabilize them all, almost all the universities in the country
apart from strike have embraced tribalism, which makes it
totally hard for a non indigene to be admitted without bribery.
corruption have taking the lead role in the scene of education
in our country and has become the order of the day, while
examination malpractice and all forms of social injustice have
become the order of the day, and the government, our on
government seems not to be disturbed in this growing trend of
quantity education, instead of quality and sound education.
If the government did not take steps in curtailing the wrong
development of quantity education, laundering of certificate
like WASSE, NECO, GCE, ‘O" And "A" Level, OND, HND, Bsc, BA, LLB,
NYSC, MSC, PHD and all others will exist and the certificate
will be placed on sale for those who need them, hawkers will
take them a round for sale, even our so called merit awards and
prestigious honors will be dishonored and will also be laundered
and placed for sale, what faith?
