Analysis Of Education System In Nigeria

By Maryanne Goff

Different nations have diverse curriculum as far as the education sector is concerned. In this article, the case study will be based on the education system in Nigeria. It has three main structures; primary, secondary and tertiary. With victorious completion of each level, there is issuance of national certificates. Although commencement has to be at the nursery schools, this format does not recognize such. It is up to the parents to decide whether to start their kids here or not.

Nursery studies for kids should be the initial and foundation of this process. The government does not recognize it due to the fact that many parents find it a little bit expensive to take their children to these institutions. The basic point of it all is that kids who undergo through nursery lessons before joining primary schools and those who do not portray a great difference in terms of mental preparedness.

The assumption given by the government is that one begins straight away with primary schooling once he or she has reached the required age of six years. On their twelfth birthdays, they should have concluded this system meaning, they are taught for duration of six years. In the end, certification is done for those who have successfully finished the syllabus and thus; have a go ahead to proceed to secondary schools.

The Nigerian government has branded primary schooling as mandatory for all kids in this republic. As a way of enhancing this, under the system of universal basic learning, it offers studies free of charge. Parents only meet the minor expenses and levies imposed within the respective schools where their children attend. Putting on school uniform is the main feature of this stage.

Successful completion of primary studies is a direct ticket for inception of secondary education for those students whose parents and guardians are capable of affording the relevant charges. Under this next level, there are two phases for one to undergo through. Acquisition of junior secondary schooling certificate, which is normally the first phase, takes the first three years.

The senior secondary school comes next. Just as the junior type, it lasts three years too. Upon triumphant conclusion, a certificate of completion known as senior secondary learning is issued. Secondary schooling provides both academic and subject specialization. Still under this level financial aspect is a huge letdown because parents have to cater for the fees of their students on their own. A pass in this level for those who are financially well guarantees them entry into the universities and other tertiary colleges.

The final level of this entire curriculum is that of tertiary studies. These include institutions of higher learning such as colleges, polytechnics and universities. The whole structure takes a minimum of four years with professional courses such as engineering and medicine taking up to six years.

With universities as part of education system in Nigeria, conclusion of the relevant course guarantees a student first degree certificate. Thereafter, more and more studies can be undertaken for Masters and Doctorate degrees. Polytechnics and colleges on the other hand offer certificates of Higher National Diplomas. Holders of these can look forward for studies in the universities for degree programs.
