NGO Gives Recipe For Improved Education

NGO Gives Recipe For Improved Education

The best way to improve on the standards of education in Nigeria is to improve teachers’ skills and discover students’ talents through effective technique, a Non-Governmental organisation (NGO) has said.

Mr. Emmanuel Maduka, Managing Director of Kolog Nigeria Ltd., an NGO, said this in an interview with newsmen in Lagos.

He said this was necessary because the education system in Nigeria had deteriorated while students now found it difficult to pass their examinations.

According to him, “If the teachers have the needed skills and are able to discover the students’ talents, the standard of education will improve.”

He said that the Federal Government needed to properly finance the education sub-sector.

Maduka called on the government to put in all efforts at ensuring that teachers were encouraged to be dedicated to their profession.

“Incentives should be provided to motivate them towards effective teaching,” he said.

The NGO boss also urged teachers to be proactive in dealing with their students.

He appealed to government to provide adequate employment noting that majority of youths are discouraged as a result of not securing employment after leaving school.

“The rate at which the youth engage in atrocities in the country is increasing daily. There is need for proper orientation to prepare them for the future,” he said.

Maduka said that self-employment should be encouraged in Nigerian institutions to reduce the rate of unemployment.

He said that awards and scholarships should be given to students as a way of encouragement.
