Prof. Yemi Osinbajo’s Three Fold Plan For The Development New Curriculum For Education
The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo was at Grange School, Lagos as the Keynote speaker at the unveiling of the 60th anniversary logo ceremonies. .
One of the critical issues looked at is how to develop a new curriculum for education, the VP stated a three fold plan.
Accoding to him, the first step is to ensure that Nigeria’s education systems are able to attain all of the sustainable goals outcomes.
Those standards include school enrollment, quality of education, adult literacy, quality of teaching, and we intend to meet all of those targets.
“We intend to work with the more than 9 million out of school children, by properly equipping and training educators across the country, the VP said.
He added that school enrollment has already increased in many cases by over 30% in the last two and a half years, largely on account of our school feeding program.
The next question we asked is for whom do we plan. 📌
The answer is quite straightforward as you might imagine- the Nigerian child. Not just the ones in the urban areas or only the few that are privileged to afford decent schooling above the weakened standards of public schooling generally. . “Every Child Counts” is the name of the Federal Government Policy which means we have democratized our vision of a qualitative and relevant education to reach every Nigerian child. .
Every Child Counts ensures that all our children in the estimated rank of 13.2 million children reported to have been counted out of school from between 2010-2015, get a decent education that matches our country’s great and lofty aspirations. The VP asserted.
