British Curriculum In Nigerian Schools

By - - [ Education Opinion ]

Ever since colonialists ruled over Nigeria in the pre-independent era,we have learnt and taken cues from their ways of life. They imbibed in us knowledge and brought civilization to Nigeria. Our dress sense,food choice,government and even our educational system are aspects of our lives that were affected by the change they brought to us.

Nigeria however is a country described as the giant of Africa due to her vast size. A very rich country for its mineral resources especially black gold(crude oil) and her agriculturally fertile land. Nigeria is a country wonderfully created by God. Nigeria has over five hundred tribes which are very rich in culture. 

Our schools should be a source of acquiring knowledge,of learning and knowing the tenets of our cultures and traditions. In our schools, we should take in  every piece of our norms and facts around us. Why then should we adopt British curriculum in our Nigerian schools? Can it solve the current problems in Nigeria? Will it in any way help us to understand the situation of Nigeria? Will it help in building a nationalistic spirit in citizens of our beloved Nigeria?

What's your take on the adoption of British curriculum in  Nigeria's education system???

I think it's really important because it helps to know more and then improves us in general. There is more to it in the corriculim because it teaches us about them and the way they live. We also get to know history about them so to me I think it's an advantage

Adapting Currilum of British in Nigerian School will help us alot. Nigerian Schools, most especially the higher institutions are full of borrowed courses that are not of use in department. Nigerian schools are of theory no practical aspect. If we should adopt it, I think it will help us a long way

I think it will help us a lot because it has been helping us from start because we were colonized by the Britain and we have been following their steps even in education because their education system is very good that most of our H.O.DS in our university schooled there and they can say much about that but for us to start our educational system is a bad idea and it's gonna change a lot of things in Nigeria so I say the the British educational system is still the best

Nigeria will continue to get it wrong if it do with its own style. 

We had working styles of learning in parts of the present day Nigeria before the colonialist came i believe that foreing culture will only tap out the best hands off the country to the foreign lands and leave us with nothing left.
