Educationist Laments Fall In Education Standard


The National President of Union of Unity Schools Association of Nigeria, UUSAN, John  Osodi, has called on the government to resuscitate the dying educational sector.

He made this plea at a dinner party held at the Old Students Association of Federal  Government Schools.

”The cost of education has gone up due to corruption that has eaten deep into every  aspect of the nation’s economy. The government should stem the corruption in the  educational sector and ensure a high standard like it was in the past,” he added.

He described as a bad omen for the future the recent ranking of the country’s  educational standard as the 43rd in Africa.
