EDUCATION THAT WORKS
Certainly, it is not useful for us to continue to pay lip service to what our education should be. Our hands must work and get dirty if we want to ever experience good education in Nigeria again. We ALL have to work hard to see that our EDUCATION WORKS.
Whether you’re a parent, teacher, business leader, or simply a member of our community that cares about the future of our local economy, you’ll need to participate to see how our local classrooms and indeed schools are working to give our students the skills they need to succeed in school, and in life.
Supporting our students, teachers and schools impacts the future for all of us.
Education that Works is about reflecting the real world in the classroom – where students have authentic experiences with solving real-world problems that they are going to experience if they are going to lead in the future.
In a nutshell, education that is career-wide orientated; with special focus on skills & competencies that are needed in the job market and those that create jobs.
When stakeholders look away, under appreciate or are weakly informed, it’s harder to achieve.
Straight to the point.
