High School Curriculum Lagos Nigeria - Free Private Secondary Schools Curriculum Advice.
Upgrade Your Students! Go The Extra Mile!
High school curriculum Lagos Nigeria - The private secondary schools curriculum is exactly the same as the public secondary schools curriculum in Lagos Nigeria and virtually everywhere else in Nigeria. And this is the official secondary school curriculum provided by the ministry of education.
Here's something important to note.
The high school curriculum (also called secondary school curriculum) provided by the ministry of education is pretty detailed. And it is broken down into subject areas to be covered week by week. This curriculum can be purchased at the ministry of education office in Alausa Ikeja Lagos Nigeria.
Nevertheless, even though the high school curriculum used by private secondary schools and public secondary schools are about the same, there is a world of difference between students who graduate from premium private schools and those from public schools.
What accounts for the difference?
1. Quality of teachers
2. Teaching facilities available
3. The School environment
4. Nature and quality of extra curricula activities
5. Dedicated teachers who happily teach the students because they are well paid
Consequently, students of premium private secondary schools turn out to be better performers in many fields.
They . . .
No wonder parents of these children willingly pay those high school fees!
All in all, the high school curriculum (or secondary school curriculum) implemented by public and private secondary schools in Lagos Nigeria is well laid out and thorough. And premium private secondary schools execute this high school curriculum flawlessly. Therefore they produce better educated students.
However, there is a problem with the curriculum itself.
The Problem With Secondary School Curriculum
The secondary school curriculum does a good job of laying out the process of teaching young students all they need to know about secondary school science and art courses.
However, the secondary school curriculum fails woefully in the area of wealth creation and money management.
Students graduate from secondary school not knowing how to create wealth for themselves or how to generate money using the knowledge they have acquired.
Yes, they make distinction in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English language, Fine Arts, Economics, Accounting, and other related subjects taught in public and private secondary schools. But how do these students convert that knowledge to money?
Nobody . . . no teacher or principal . . . offers to teach them that because it's not in the high school curriculum.
In simple words . . . these students are taught to become heavy spenders and not earners.
Now, some may argue that these secondary school students are just 'children' not adults. So, it's okay for them to just spend and not earn.
Well, think about this.
When these children get into the University, does it get any better?
Obviously, the answer is NO.
Many University graduates have no idea how to turn the knowledge they acquired from their years of study in the University into money.
Yes, they spend four or five years studying economics, mathematics, engineering, pharmacy, medicine etc But they were not taught how to convert that knowledge into money.
What happens when they graduate?
They troop into the labour market in search of white collar jobs.
Five years of study in the university and a student have no idea how to make money on his own?
That is pathetic!
The University curriculum is just as lame as the high school curriculum because it does not directly empower students to become self sufficient by teaching them how to convert their wealth of knowledge into income.
That is the very reason why Nigeria is filled with millions of graduates . . . smart young men and women . . . who have no idea how to become financially independent by converting their knowledge into cash.
The high school curriculum failed them. And so did the University curriculum.
These are the same graduates who eventually turn to crime and become a menace to the communities they live.
Private Secondary School Owners . . . You Can Help!
Persuading the big wigs in the ministry of education and the white bearded professors in the Nigeria Universities Commission (NUC) to include practical courses that teach students to be self sufficient and financially empowered in the school curriculum is a herculean task.
I can almost assure you that the bureaucracy in the education system will prevent that noble idea from seeing the light of day.
However, if you're a private school owner (a private school proprietor or proprietress), you can do a lot to help your students become financially empowered.
By introducing a supplementary course that teaches your students how to . . .
When you offer this kind of supplementary course to your students (an extension of the extra curricula activity concept in the high school curriculum), you will be preparing them to become financially independent adults.
By offering this course, you will be reducing the number of unemployed graduates who are pissed off at society and who eventually turn to crime.
Your school will have a real and measurable impact on society. And your students will forever be thankful to you for going the extra mile.
