Education In Nigeria

The Ministry of education looks after the education in Nigeria. It is the duty of the local authorities to look after the education imparted by the state at the regional level. Today the whole world is witnessing a revolution and it is for a new world. In this new world, education is the main priority of all. Let us throw some light on the pattern of education in Nigeria where the system is actually divided into many spheres like kindergarten, primary, secondary, and tertiary education.

Primary level of education:

This stage actually begins when the child is four years old and lasts for six years. The curriculum includes subjects as English language, mathematics, Islamic knowledge studies, and the Christian religious knowledge. In addition to these, the discipline also offers courses on computer, science subjects, fine arts, and French as well. In order to get admission in the state government schools and the private schools one has to appear in the common entrance examination. One also has to learn other foreign languages and culture as well. It is deciphered that the Universal Basic Education Commission really does monitor the primary education and the secondary education .In fact; they had also free for every child. Moreover, it is included in one of the rights that children should be given proper education.

Secondary level of education:

Well the secondary school is again divided in to two segments like the senior secondary school and the junior secondary school. In each of the levels, the students have to spend three years. You can also see that the federal government provides funds to the schools. Moreover, the teachers and the non-teaching staffs all are the employees of the government. You can see that the annual fees of the private secondary schools in Nigeria are little bit expensive. However, these schools provide better quality of education to the children; they are equipped with modern tools and facilities. The teachers over there are also qualified and possess a degree in the particular area of interest.

Higher level of education:

The higher-level education is actually monitored by the Federal government. In order to take admission in the reputed universities in Nigeria you have to sit for two exams and they have to consider the cutoff marks. The students need to have qualifying marks in the National certificate of education and the national certificates. Those who have attained the 18 years of age can visit the universities and pursue other academic degrees.

Increase of good and qualified students have imposed pressure on the state government to allow them to open more universities because the Federal Universities can no longer bear the pressure of the pass out students. Therefore, the needs of the nation and other technological forces have made the education indispensable parts of life.

In order to provide education that is more relevant the private organizations are also investing in cooperation of the federal governments to build a glorious future of the millions and in turn the prosperity of the nation.
