Education is critical to development and ensuring the rights and well-being of citizens, yet Nigeria has one of the worst educational system in Africa. In 2013, over 70% of the students failed the school leaving certificate examination according to the West African Examinations Council (WAEC). Adamawa and Ebonyi states were at the bottom of that list while Enugu state fared slightly better. Rural students performed worse than their urban counterparts. The major reason for the poor performance was attributed to the absence of qualified and experienced teachers in schools. Good teachers prefer to be in better paid urban private schools. Without a good education, young people especially the poor are less likely to escape poverty.read more
Radio School is simply interesting! It is a whole new approach to learning.
Odey Blessing – City Girls Secondary School
I think Radio School is a great opportunity for students who are deprived of the chance to go to school to be trained through the radio from their homes.
Idoko Ruth – Queens School Enugu
Radio School is as good as the normal classroom school. The examples are brought to real life experiences. Radio School has improved my knowledge on various academic subjects.
