    I came across this piece on
    facebook and I think it’s worth
    sharing…

    REASONS I HATE THE NIGERIA
    SCHOOL SYSTEM
    1.IT KILLS CREATIVITY
    We were made to believe that
    there is only one gate to the
    market, majority of the teachers
    will tell you to write only what
    he/she teaches you & anything
    outside that will amount to
    nothing but ZERO. if you try going
    extra mile by writing what you
    discovered based on your
    personal research, then you are on
    your own!
    No room for creativity at all. The
    only way to be a creator is to
    think different from the crowd.
    How can we do this when we
    have been trained by school that
    there is always one solution to
    any problem?
    2. IT IS A TIME WASTER
    Strike action has become a normal
    protocol that must be observed by
    majority of our schools. Hardly can
    a school finish a semester without
    Having to go on strike due to
    issues ranging from nonpayment
    of salaries, unfulfilled government
    promises, poor management
    decision, and the likes…
    The adverse effects of strike
    cannot be over emphasized as it
    results In unnecessary delay…
    Let’s not forget the long ASUU
    STRIKE, LAUTECH strike that lasted
    for almost 2 years.
    3. THE SYSTEM IS TOO POROUS
    Our education system is just too
    porous at the moment! Anything
    goes… The system is too porous to
    the extent that even "drop outs"
    are now teaching in our schools.
    In fact, the easiest job to get in
    Nigeria now is TEACHING. Once
    you can speak a little grammar
    (Eboobu) and stand before crowd
    you’re good to go… WTF!
    Also, The system is so weak that
    Students sitting for exams like
    JAMB, WAEC, NECO, etc are already
    loaded with expo even before the
    paper commences. Who’s
    supplying them?
    How can a student who earned
    his/her grades via Expo become a
    "game changer" after
    graduation?? Never!
    4. IT IS PRIMITIVE
    The world system is not static-it
    changes day by day, but it’s very
    unfortunate that many of the
    reading materials used in our
    schools are obsolete. How will
    someone be using a material that
    was last revised 10 years ago.
    Which way na?
    5. TOO MANY SQUARE PEG IN
    ROUND HOLES
    If our education is gonna rise
    again, then the team involved in
    recruiting teachers should "up
    their game" in this aspect…
    Recruitment according to Collins
    (2001) is "getting the right people
    on the bus, the wrong people off
    the bus, and the right people in
    the right seats"
    Majority of our teachers today are
    teaching "strange subjects" I.e
    subject they know little or
    nothing about. Can you imagine
    someone who knows nothing
    about computer teaching students
    Information Technology. Will such
    teacher deliver effectively? No o!
    You can’t give what you don’t
    have…
    6. WE WORSHIP CERTIFICATE &
    GOOD GRADES
    In Nigeria, we love Worshipping
    grades & certificates… whether
    you understand what you were
    taught in school or not that
    concerns no one…
    At the expense of getting good
    grades many students that cannot
    bribe will engage in the "LA cram
    la pour" system. Instead of
    reading to understand, majority
    will just "read for passing sake".
    That is not education! The real
    education is not about what you
    have inside the paper (certificate),
    but the one you have upstairs
    (Sabificate)
    Your certificate is useless if you
    cannot solve problem in real life.
    Year in year out, our schools
    produces A lot of graduates, but
    how many problem solvers has
    the system produced so far??
    While Nigeria focuses on
    producing Certificate owners,
    advanced countries like America,
    Japan, China, etc focus on building
    Quality men via a sound education
    system.
    Go and check the list of the
    greatest inventors of all time, how
    many Nigerians are there??
    ……………..
    So, in a nutshell… I’m imploring All
    the stakeholders in the Nigerian
    Education sector (Students,
    parents, teachers, school
    management, government, etc) to
    arise and do the needful.
    THANKS & GOD BLESS NIGERIA
