My post-study plan will focus on putting into practice the experience and education acquired for the benefit of my country whose interests motivated my study in the first place. I have a straightforward plan, but my plan will always be contingent on realities on the ground.
I hope to come back to my job teaching students. Ultimately, there will be a difference because I will be equipped with modern-day skills and technology in teaching.
I have the hope of returning back to my school but the prospects of working in a state education board will be high. By the end of my studies, I have it in mind to write proposals based on my new findings to boards for implementation.
The low level of teaching in Nigeria ought to be arrested if the country intends to move forward. For a nation to move forward you must ask the question of who teaches my future leaders?
Generally, in Nigeria, the manpower with the right training in educating the young is limited. Despite having specialized programs like the NCE and B.Ed programs to nurture teachers, there is a dearth of qualified teachers in Nigeria. Because of the poor remuneration of teachers, there is a perceived apathy towards those programs. As a result, it becomes a program for people who could not do well in other courses.
Teaching is yet to be properly institutionalized and that explains the tendency for the populace to look down on teachers. Other professionals are seen from a different lens than teachers and these are things that must change if we want a better teaching staff in Nigeria. People must drive these changes.
