We are citizens, teachers, administrators, and parents united by our assistance for public education and by issues for its future. The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) prepare examinations for admission into institutions of greater understanding namely Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education and Monotechnics. University administration and regulation is handled by the national universities commission (NUC) although National Board for Technical Education (NABTE) handles other tertiary institutions. Sometimes the federal government offers grants and scholarships to deserving institutions by way of its Education Trust Fund (ETF) and scholarship board.
Nigeria has had her personal share of industrial actions in the Education sector with the respective trade unions namely Nigerian Union of teachers (both for principal and secondary schools), Academic employees union of Universities (ASUU) and Academic employees union of polytechnics (ASUP). The PARENTS are organizing their own meetings: gathering a couple of other close friends and discussing education in the kitchen more than some much needed wine investigation.

Overall Nigeria’s Education though suffering neglect more than the years especially throughout military rule has enhanced owing to conscious efforts of stake holders to restore pride to that sector and the coming ten years look to offer you excellent prospects for that sector with increased funding and efficiency coming its way. So much has been able to occur – and will continue to take place – simply because the parents are stepping forward to fight for the education their youngsters – OUR youngsters – deserve. The PARENTS are attending board of education meetings in record numbers and testifying during public comment to superintendents and nearby boards of education.
Gathering neighborhood members – teachers, other parents, and students – for movie screenings, most popularly to see Standardized: Lies, Cash, and Civil Rights: How Testing is Ruining Public Education.

Once again, we must all collectively seek confirmation on this, and push for answers from the New Jersey Division of Education/State Board of Education and local boards of education.
Wednesday, January 7th was the month-to-month State Board of Education meeting, and about 100 parents, teachers, and students attended to give testimony for the duration of the open-topic session. That in bold is the original statement ( her full testimony can be read right here from the Department of Education Web site ) and what follows are my responses, all of which are backed up with articles/evidence. States have to take duty and be held accountable for offering a robust educational chance for all. Several of these young individuals may possibly locate trades and jobs that suit them, but they may possibly never ever be interviewed due to their lack of a diploma.
