Failure to send children to school means being arrested in Bayelsa

"Curriculum is something that is constantly reviewed based on the emerging markets and trends of the society,” Ajala said.

As part of efforts towards improving the education sector, experts have advocated for a review of the current curriculum for Nigerian schools.

Speaking at the launch of a book, “The School Guide” in Abuja, the author, Angela Ajala, emphasized on digitization and introduction of appropriate curriculum in schools for the reflective learning of the students.

"Curriculum is something that is constantly reviewed based on the emerging markets and trends of the society,” Ajala said.

“The curriculum must address the need of the market. Digitisation is easy to do but must be taken one after another.  It is in phases and there is no way any school can run away from it because it is the future.

"The School Guide aims at creating a partnership between parents and teachers on how to inculcate the right educational values on children and provides insights on how to run a great school,” she added.

 

In his remarks, guest speaker at the occasion, Tope Togun, said education remains the most powerful tool that can be used to change the world.

"The foundation of every single idea is education. If the people who conceptualized Apple, Uber and other ingenious ideas were not educated, they would not have been able to create these transformative technologies," Togun stated.

Meanwhile, the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) is to provide scholarship to Miss Elizabeth Elijah who was hit by flying debris from the crashed fighter jet during air training for Nigeria Independence Day celebration.

The Director, FCT Universal Basic Education Board (UBEC)Adamu Noma, disclosed this when he visited the girl at Maitama General Hospital, Abuja, with some directors who represented the administration on Wednesday in Abuja.
