Olukolade, Odekunle; Chinonyerem, Unaeze Ugochi
African Higher Education Review, v7 n1 p45-54 May 2013
Education is a great instrument of importance to every nation. It, therefore, attracts considerable attention. It has been generally conceived that only an educated population can command the skills necessary for sustainable economic growth and a better quality of life. The quality of education received by citizens is therefore important in determining the level of transformation and development of any nation and when the education sector is threatened, then underdevelopment, insecurity and lack of manpower for social and economic development becomes eminent. Quality education can be measured by the extent to which the training received from an institution enables the recipient to think clearly, independently and analytically to solve relevant societal problems in any given environment. The major strategy in achieving this is by training and retraining more teachers and ensuring a total commitment on the part of the government by enhancing the quality of supervisors and also making them to be effective in their supervisory roles.
