Grade/Class Repetition by sud12(m): 12:56am On Jul 10, 2020
Over the years many has held government as the main factor behind sub-standard academic performance in Nigeria; and of which there is an iota of truth within the acclaimed fact due to the government's negligence and poor funding of the educational sector (punchng reveals that the government budgetary allocation towards the educational sector has not exceeded 10% spanning from 2009-2018).
However, the parental factor (that is socio economic challenges faced by children through malnutrition, inaccessibility to textbooks, school uniforms and distance to be covered between their schools and respective homes); teacher factor (low training and academic qualification coupled with the problem of unmotivated teachers using school as their last opportunity to be employed) and lastly the school authorities factors (major school owners are only profit oriented at the expense of the pupil's academic feat) cannot be overlooked.
Apart from these factors listed above is the GRADE/CLASS REPETITION FACTOR. During my primary and secondary education days, there's this urge among the pupil's to be attentive and also work hard to meet the minimum requirement for the next grade/class in order to avoid repetition of Class. But presently, repetition of class has been disposed off and what has become the order of the day is AUTOMATIC PROMOTION of pupils/students to next Grade/Class both in the Primary and Secondary School System. This has brought about increase in examination malpractice rate due to the fact that the pupils believes that the school will promote us to the next class either we pass or fail.
The consequences of the above named phenomenon has brought about a greater puzzle that needs to be solved in the Tertiary Institution.
Please what are your responses towards this lapses/phenomenon on our educational system?
