EDUCATION, ITS MINIMUM STANDARD AND NIGERIAN DEVELOPMENT

I. V. O. Modo (PhD)

Abstract


The author looked closely at Education, its minimum standard and Nigerian Development. It is believed that Educational Infrastructure of a country must reach a certain standard before development can be noticed in different sectors of its economy. The author used participatory research, published information from texts, journals and other print media as data collection method. Research findings include very poor funding of education by governments in Nigeria. The paper recommended among other things that 30% of the National Budget be spent on education if sustainable development could be attained by 2030.
