Nigerian Schools - Lagos Nigeria Schools - Solid Education
Yes, the state of public schools in Lagos Nigeria and virtually everywhere in the country is deplorable.
. . . and more.
But then those are public schools . . . schools owned and run by the government.
Parents in Nigeria believe that education is the best legacy they can pass on to their children. So, they go out of their way to ensure their children get the best education possible.
There is a general consensus that public schools do not have the facilities and the resources to deliver top-notch primary and secondary or high school education that meets the challenges of the 21st century.
Parents agree that children from public schools are ill-prepared for the tough challenges of higher education. Hence, parents who can afford it do not spare any expense to send their kids to private Nigerian schools.
I agree with these parents because I attended a public school. And I can tell you from experience that I was ill-prepared for University life.
I was a pretty good student in high school. But when I got admission into a federal University in Nigeria, I discovered that there was so much I didn't know . . . stuff I should have learnt in secondary or high school.
Consequently, my first year of University life was WAR. And that is no exaggeration.
If you are considering relocating to Lagos Nigeria or anywhere else in the country, you have no reason to be afraid. Private schools have come to the rescue of the Nigerian education system.
That is not to say that ALL private schools are super schools. There are those that are operated by quacks, of course. But there are highly rated Nigerian schools (especially private schools) that can match the best of schools in the world.
First came private primary and secondary schools. Then international schools like British and American international schools. Then private polytechnics and private universities.
The list is endless. Make your pick. Give your child a solid education right here in Lagos Nigeria.
