This post’s message is in line with the theme of my last few posts of the failure of the formal schooling system – especially in Nigeria – to prepare learners to arrive society with real world relevant competence that ensures they can fend for themselves.
The most recent being yesterday’s post about the meeting I was invited to have at the Ministry of Youth and Social Development, about my paper titled “Schooling is a Means to an End and NOT an End in Itself”(click to read).
This post features – below – 2 third party online resources that reflect the hard truths I discussed in my paper – and that’s why I find it compeling to feature them here:
1. A video of Femi Ogedengbe, the Nollywood actor turned security guard in the United States: This guy totally gets IT!!!
2. A Facebook post by the popular Bayo Adeyinka, sharing his frustration from interviewing 50 “graduates” of Nigerian tertiary institutions
