Early Childhood Education in Nigeria: A Reality or a Mirage?
Ajayi, Hannah O.
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v9 n4 p375?380 2008
Education is the right of every child and must not be denied it for any reason. This has been the assertion of the World Summit on the state of global children, which has led to the inclusion and expansion of early childhood care and education in the global Education for All programme (EFA). As Nigeria has pledged its commitment to this, with the recent inauguration of the policy on this educational arm, this article therefore examines the situation on the ground, on the prospects, and on the problems, and gives recommendations that could make the educational programme a reality in the nation in the interest of the children. (Contains 1 table and 2 notes.)
