Covid-19 Has Exposed the Flaws in Nigerian Educational System - Ifeoma Onuike Writes

The current global pandemic has exposed to a great extent the flaws in the Nigerian educational system in terms of digital learning infrastructure.

COVID-19 started from Wuhan, China before gradually spreading to other parts of the world. China being a first world country with immense health care system, technology and development should’ve tackled the outbreak before it spreads. However, this is not the bone of contention.

In January 2020, coronavirus gradually spread to other countries, and before world leaders and WHO could properly grasp what was happening it became a global pandemic. Nigeria was not left out, in March 2020; the country went on lockdown with almost every sector closed including the Educational sector.

This lockdown disrupted the education learning timetable. The primary and secondary school students who were at the pick of writing their exams were put on hold. The University students were also sent back home and campuses closed down.

It’s quite unfortunate that since March to date, no proper form of learning has been put in place to ensure that students are not affected drastically by the pandemic.

Well, the story is sad for government-owned educational institutions because the private schools especially Secondary schools have long devised a means for online or pre-recorded classes for their students.

The question is why it is not the same for government-owned educational institutions?

Why has technology not been infused in our educational system since before now?

These questions are rhetorical because the situation is clearly different for other countries. They have already infused technology in their educational system, so moving to e-learning was made easy, and adapting to the current global predicament is a piece of cake.

In Nigeria, we hardly have digital Libraries for research let alone internet facilities for study.

This is a wakeup call to those in authority that they need to move to pass the times when the only project they accomplish is laying the foundation for a school that may never be built, providing desks, buildings, toilets, etc.

These things are essential, but more need to be done for our educational sector to be millennial compliant. We should do better, and start investing in Digital Learning techniques that will make our educational system relevant.
