Just like a boss ahead of his contemporaries.
Lagos is waking up to address the emotional and social deficiencies of this rush where children don't mature before moving to the next stage of academic ladder.
It's a giant stride and I appreciate their concerns. Maturity is key and it will help us to challenge the pains,stress and headaches parents and lecturers face in school dealing with such immature lads.

Finishing at age 18, get jambed 2, 3 or even 5 times before entry into higher institution, then finally graduate at age 30 (inclusive of ASUU strike school disruptions and what not), after nysc, you're 32 and past the age of entry level recruitment. What a funny country

I swear!!!!!!!! This is the best policy in education sector in recent years. Was still discussing this very crucial issue with woman days ago!!!!
Imagine a scenario whereby some new generation 'sophisticated' parents wants their wards in JSS 1 at the age of 7, 8, 9 or 10 and by the time the kid is 16 or 17, would already be done with university! And then by 19 would be done with nysc and then start working. And for those in majority, may not get a good job at that stage and so, life problems start hitting them with so much frustration which they were not fully prepared or grounded to face and then they resort to drugs, prostitution and other dangerous vices just to keep face or survive!
And there is where the challenge starts. Because they are still teenagers with the enormous mantle of grown adult's headaches, they become so directionless in life especially because most Nigerian men don't intend to settle down maritally or even take life very serious till they are 30 years and above. FACT!
Come to clubs on the island and you would weep for the new generations our so called enlightened and cosmopolitan parents are now raising. You would see young girls of 15, 16 from mostly Christian and Religious higher institutions of learning like Covenant, Babcock (the Babcock lady giving head last year in the viral video comes to mind here), Redeemers, Mountain Top, Caleb, Unilag, Leads, Alkhima, Afe Babalola, etc, flooding some of the most exquisite, expensive and classy night clubs on the island, in Owerri, Benin, PH, Abuja every and every weekend!
Or why do you think new exquisite clubs are opening up every other day in Lagos and those cities mentioned? High rate of slay queens everywhere? Or astronomical numbers of mamalawos on IG? Or the fact that weed, codeine, and other 'get high' drugs are recording the craziest sales ever? Its beyond just the fact there are big boys ready to spend but simply because the young and willing underage girls from the higher institutions of learning abounds massively like the sands in the ocean. You see young girls at age 17, 18, 19 among them already having flapping and seriously sagged breasts**.
And you begin to wonder if they are not young girls from so called prestigious and religious universities where security was very tight, where morals were preached and impacted on all fronts, where their parents spend fortunes on them to be in so called best schools?
If you were one brought up in a strict home and responsible background and happen to see things as they are in those cities mentioned, you would weep bitterly.
Don't get get this submission wrong as this is not to generalise that all underaged kids in universities are bad or irresponsible. Far from it. Still a lot are well raised and doing remarkably well even after graduation. Because age at times doesn't translated to maturity. But the danger lies in having kids who are not raised well to fully absorb the crude shocks of life in the majority!
How can you explain so many 16 years olds in 400 level in universities but are already deeply enmeshed in drug abuse? Or the girls that have committed several abortions that they have lost counts? Or those who have been to 100's of exquisite clubs in and out of the country at age 16/17? Thats why you see so many childish comments on social media posts and forum especially on Nairaland in recent years and you begin to wonder, who are these so called young adults with terribly childish mentality? How can you then explain the highest numbers of young boys and girls committing suicides in recent years when we all know Nigerian rarely commit suicide? By time the damage has been seriously done on those boys and girls, you now see their mother's en masse in churches and other religious gatherings seriously praying and fasting for God to touch the soul of those already destroyed children.
We play and pray too much in this country!

Lagos always at the forefront, excellent move I must say. No matter how brilliant a child is, cognitive domain plays major role at the long run in the child's education in the future especially in senior secondary school. Normally, a child should be at the age 3 years before entry to nursery 1, 6 years at primary 1, then 12 years at JSS 1 but today, private schools no longer follows Nigeria's system of education because pupils now spent 5 years in primary schools instead of 6 due to their system of learning ahead of the pupils class curriculum.

So 8years old in primary 6 would have to wait for 4 years before entering secondary school
They should start this from the new set entering KG 1.

missimelda01:But why is an 8yrs old in primary six?
Parents these days will just give birth to kids, dress them like adults straight out of the belly then hand it over to the teachers and continue making money.
Kids no longer have time to be kids, adulthood is forced on them right from birth.

I don't know why Nigerian parents behave like this, my aunt is planning on changing her daughter's school because she said at 4 years old her girl was supposed to be in primary 1... I preached against it, but las las I have no say in the matter.

SUPERPACK:Punishment for a crime he/she didn't commit, the parents should be educated about things like this. Since the deed has already been done, they should be tested properly before entering sec school.
|Re: Lagos Pegs Entry Age Into JSS1 At 12 Years by SUPERPACK: 9:33am On Apr 07, 2020|
missimelda01:Agreed. The parents should serve the time.

missimelda01:If you go to private schools and see the lifestyles of children there, especially those from rich homes, you will weep.
They do all manna of rubbish and some good ones will be looking at them like they're aliens. The society is messed up already, so parents need to spend time with their kids and teach things they should know.
This will help stabilize their source of moral guidance to a good extent but the opposite is the case.
Today's parents actually think making money available to kids is the best.
I know a woman here, she leaves home by 6am and returns by 10pm. The husband leaves by 7:30am and returns around 9:30pm. Sometimes he would go to pick the woman up and both of them will come home by 10pm.
Then they will spend like an hour praying God to bless, guide and direct their kids so they won't join bad company.
I called her one day and said to her "ma'am, a day spent with your child is more useful to the child than a year of prayer"
But the love money won't let her listen to reason.

12 is on the high side. 11 is still okay...
But all out elites would take their children to expensive schools that won't take to this new law.
The law is for the masses

missimelda01:Why should an 8 year old be in primary 6 in the first place? He's not mature enough to handle the mental and emotional rigour of high school.

At that age, I was in ss1 but here am I, almost 18 and still struggling to enter the University, despite the fact that I never failed jamb�....... This is really bad because admission into universities isn't automatically guaranteed upon graduation.

At that age, i was in ss2

Wrong. 16 is the minimum age of admission into the universities in Nigeria, except its flouted
|Re: Lagos Pegs Entry Age Into JSS1 At 12 Years by lahizak: 10:48am On Apr 07, 2020|
Thats a very good move. If u are vigilant u will observe that most of the people failing in the university are either too young or too old. The ones graduating with the best result are between those age group except in some very small cases. The old ones is understandable but nowadays d people in the uni are just too young. I am a secondary school teacher and I av lot of students in jss 1 that are between the age of 8 and 9 and they are very dull compared to their classmate of age 12 or 13. Nowadays parent tend to rush their children.my younger sister is 15 in ss2 and she sat 4 jamb dis year. She got 181 and if she passed waec, she will be in 100l next year. I had to tell my mum to let her write another jamb next year so dat she can be more matured.

Nowadays you see a nine-year-old already in JS 1, I wonder if he or she enrolled into nursery school immediately he or she was born. Good news and move.
