Abstract

Nigeria has expressed a commitment to education, with the belief that overcoming illiteracy and ignorance will form a basis for accelerated national development. However, regardless of the incontrovertible evidence that education is crucial to the development of the community and the nation, there remain inequalities in access to education. Despite its potential for leveling opportunities, education is pathetically used to perpetrate inequalities. Millions of poor people are still being excluded from the processes and outcomes of education. For thirty years the nation has been unable to successfully implement the National Policy on Education (NPE). The policy which came into existence in 1997 after over four years of deliberations at various levels appeared to have solutions to virtually all core educational problems. However, there are apparent serious problems in the area of implementation. Some of them are highlighted in this presentation.
