Quota system is destroying Nigeria’s education- Proprietress


By Chika Otuchikere

The proprietress of a Mission private primary/secondary school, in Abuja, the New Christian Power Centre International School, Rev. Mrs. Charity Edeki, has identified quota system in the nation’s education sector as a major factor that has contributed to the country’s current fallen standard of education.

Edeki who made this known in an exclusive interview with Education Tell, called on the federal government to review the quota system policy with a view to replacing it with policies that will entrench merit in the educational system.

“I’ll advise the government to go back to merit. This quote system is what has contributed to the present fallen standard of education. I think, recently, JAMB dropped their score from 180 to 100. Why? Because they discovered that some children that they would want to gain admission, are not able to meet up with the scores. So, the government should leave this thing called quota when it comes to education, let’s operate on merit. Let every child go to where he can flow.

“A child that scored 100 in JAMB result, should not find himself in the same class with a child that scored 250 because it will drag down the child with 250. But if that child goes to where other children that have 100, they will improve gradually. So, my advice to government is that, let’s drop this quota system policy when it comes to education,” she said.

The proprietress, who is also the senior pastor of the New Christian Power Centre International Church (CPC), a Pentecostal gospel ministry, also called on the federal government to give subvention to private schools to enable the school provide quality education to Nigerian children.

According to her, running a school that provides quality education is cost intensive and the school administrators would need the financial support of government to ensure that they do not compromise the standard and quality that would equip the students to become productive citizens of the country.

She stressed that teachers must be well taken care of so that they do not consider leaving the school system for more lucrative jobs in other sectors of the economy. According to her, paying teachers a living wage is something the government must consider and take actions on ,if they want to secure the future of the country.

Her words; “I will also suggest that the government should contribute to the funding of private schools. As they are giving public schools so much, they should know that the private schools are also contributing to the education of the country’s children. If the schools have more money to operate, they will not have this long labour teacher turnover. So, I will advise that the government should carry the private schools along, when they are helping the public schools.

“The government should assist because these private schools are building lives, they are helping the society. They are making children to come up to become better citizens. So, the government should also assist by giving some kind of subvention to private schools because it will help a lot. If you do not pay teachers well they will not stay. No teacher will be in school and cannot pay his house rent, cannot train his own children, he cannot pay their school fees or meet his basic lifestyle. No teacher will want to stay, they would want to move. It is not good for the education sector, government has to intervene”.

Full interview coming soon.
