US experts meet to boost education in Lagos

Education stakeholders, in the United States of America will converge on California, United States on Friday (today) to help to formulate strategies to enhance education in Nigeria, using Lagos as a pilot state.
They will be joined by a team from Lagos, including the former Chairman of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board, Mrs. Gbolahan Daodu,
The Performance Fact Inc. (USA) and Performance Fact Nigeria Limited are sponsoring the summit titled, “Framing a strategy for transforming educational effectiveness and outcomes for Nigerian students, especially the least well served … and doing so at scale.”
A statement by the organisers, on Thursday, said the event became necessary to support the government in providing quality education to the people.
It read, “In Lagos State – the economic capital of Nigeria – the task of educating millions of school-age children is an enormous undertaking.  While the state government has attempted to reinvest in its public schools, it has been very difficult to keep up with the infrastructural and educational needs of all the pupils in state.  The challenge will only become greater in coming years, as the state is projected to grow at the rate of about 600,000 residents per year.”
Meanwhile, the Founder, President/CEO, Performance Fact, Mr. Mutiu Fagbayi, has said that the objective of the summit was “to refine the current strategy, including how to build stronger partnerships with other organisations already engaged in the Nigerian education sector.”
The initiative, he added, would enable the participants to examine the challenges facing the sector as well as explore innovative approaches for securing long-term resources to power the mission.
Mutiu noted that the group had been working with policymakers and practitioners at the state and local levels since 2010 to improve the quality of pupils’ experiences.
He added, “We have achieved some initial successes and have learned many lessons. Now, we aim to revisit and reflect on our current roadmap, and define a coherent strategy and milestones for scaling up our work in Lagos State between 2016 and 2020.
“Therefore,  we have convened an intimate gathering of knowledgeable and committed individuals to assist us in thinking through the next evolution of Performance Fact’s mission in the Nigerian education sector, which is to  transform educational effectiveness and outcomes for Nigerian students, especially the least well served… and to do so at scale.”
The group’s Country Manager, Mrs. Tosin Babasanya-Craig, said that to ensure that the US participants clearly understood of the challenges, video interviews with key players in Lagos educational sector, including Dr. Ganiu Sopeyin, the current Lagos SUBEB chairman, and Dr. Gboyega Ilusanya of DEEPEN had been sent to the participants.

The University of Ilorin says no fewer than 108 fresh students of the institution were expelled for gaining admission through dubious means.
The institution’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali, disclosed this on Monday in Ilorin while exchanging views with the Commissioner of Police in Kwara, Mr. Sam Okaula, who visited him.
Ambali told the commissioner that due to stable academic calendar and culture of excellence prevalent in the university, the pressure to secure admission into the institution was high.
“This result in some candidates seeking illegal and unauthorised ways to gain admission into the university,” he said.
Ambali assured the commissioner of the university’s continuous cooperation by readily offering the police useful information required in the course of their work.
“We will volunteer any information you need to succeed,’’ the vice chancellor said.
He reiterated the university’s stance on zero tolerance for cultism and indecent dressing, stressing that these had helped to maintain sanity on the campus.  Read more.......

Calls for the establishment of Nigerian Education Bank has been on for nearly a decade. But not much has happened in this direction despite groups and influential individuals joining the fray. ENO-ABASI SUNDAY and ADAMU ABUH write on the latest effort on the project.
In June 2014, civil society group, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), accused the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan of “letting down millions of poor Nigerians by failing to implement court judgments on the right to education, the latest of which ordered the president to establish the Nigerian Education Bank that would enhance access of millions of disadvantaged children to education.”  read more....

Geographers urge more students to show interest in the subject

To boost human capital development in the field of geography, there is need to encourage young Nigerians to build up expertise in the field of urban and regional planning; environmental planning and management; geo-information sensing; surveying and mapping among others.
This was the submission of the President, Association of the Nigerian Geographers (ANG), Prof. Adeniyi Gbadegesin, during the 57th annual conference of the association, which recently held at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), with the theme, “The Geographical Perspective on National Development.”
In over 60 years of its existence, Gbadegesin hinted that ANG has continued to canvass for issues that would make geography assume the status of a reputable discipline.
He said the history of Nigeria’s development has shown over-emphasis on development with bias for economic rather than geographic dimension. read more.......
