CHOICES is a school program designed to re-shape the life style of Nigerian students in secondary school.
There is a desperate need to improve on the quality of education and activities in schools especially the public schools in Nigeria.
The challenges facing education in Nigeria is complex.
Issues such as limited access, increasing cost and decreasing quality of education need urgent attention.
A Quality education is the bedrock for a viable and sustainable political, social, cultural and rich economy.
According to a UNICEF Report Education in Nigeria is described as a disaster. This may not be far fetched from the various teachers strike leaving students roaming on the street, high poverty rate and low teaching and learning standards etc.
It is also estimated that about 10 million Nigerian Children are out of school. In most public schools, there are more than 70 students in a class. Some of these students sit on the floor to learn, under the trees while others are lucky to find a seat under the leaky roofs.
Fears are being envisaged that Nigeria may not meet to the stipulated target of the millennium Development Goal 2 Education which has to do with ensuring basic education for boys and girls in both the urban and rural setting.
The bulk of course lies on the government to make a change especially in the implementation of the policies.
However, the government cannot achieve a change alone. All hands must be on deck ranging from the civil society group, the private sector, the media and Non-Governmental Organisations.
As part of our effort to reform the education pattern in Nigeria, the CHOICES program will introduce ways to make learning easier and more exciting for the students.
It will bring to the school aspects of life that are not normally taught in the school curriculum and will also provide scholarship for students with high academic potentials.
