Restructuring Nigerian Tertiary (University) Education for Better Performance
Oyebade, Stephen Adebanjo; Dike, Chika
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (11th, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, May 14-17, 2013)
This study assesses the goals of university level of education, namely, development of high level manpower, scholarship and community service, and found that universities have not been able to achieve close to average. Problems range from social, political, financial as well as personnel issues. Specifically, they include problems of infrastructure, funding, staffing, record management and external interferences. Results include low quality outputs, poor state of infrastructure, poor international competitiveness, and hence the search for strategies to reconstruct and restructure rebuild the system to respond favourably to novel challenges of development. To redeem the system, the study prescribes that student and staff personnel needs be taken as priorities from henceforth. Also, international collaboration for students and staff exchanges, and expansion of access to qualified candidates, among others, be prioritised. [For complete volume, see ED567118.]
