Abstract:


In Nigeria, even though the educational system is blessed with many policies, in what appears to be a paradox, there is less to show for it in terms of development. Many policies in the educational system have not been seeing the light of the day because of some challenges, such as the: inadequate funding; inadequate skilled personnel; instability of government; increase in population and enrolment; corruption, inadequate and inaccurate data and information; interference of politics; disparity of implementation; ignorance of the citizens; ethnicity; negative attitudes of the citizens; which form the focus of this paper. In the quest to achieve this feat, the paper gathered literature and data to buttress the claims made in support of the theme while recommending measures for improvement of the situation, such as the: adequate funding of educational system; recruitment and regular training of Education Officers; recruitment and training of teachers; combating corruption; and a host of others.
