The media have a responsibility to voice the rights of children but need to be better equipped to do so. Repositioning the media is best initiated within an educational framework as education brings about progress in practical fields and invariably leads to improvements in society as seen in studies in development communication, health communication, science communication, environmental communication, etc. (Craig, 2000). Children journalism education will undoubtedly go a long way in improving children’s media practice. This paper calls for a journalism education programme in Nigeria to remediate the shortcomings observed in the African child’s media world and to promote the rights of children and the realisation of their dreams.
