What Your Kids Should Learn Before Age 12 by Oduok(m): 12:54pm On Aug 01
In this age of packaging, school owners do not stress themselves much before they buy the heart of parents. Tall buildings, exotic school buses, nice uniforms, and highly fluent phonetic teachers are enough to set up an international school. Don't let the school and the kid deceive you with fluency of words. If your kid has reached Junior Secondary 3 (JS3) sit him or her down and find out the following:

1. Can you use all the microsoft office tools to work? Can you program? Can you handle graphics and internet without apprenticeship?
2. Can you solve quadratic equation, simultanous equation, plot graphs, handle geometries?

3. Can you do metal work, wood work, fix electronics, sketch house plan, estimate quantity of tiles needed for a square area of work, understand polymer/soap/cosmetic production?

4. Can you manage a business and keep all the accounting books? Can you calculate discount, premium, tax, depreciation?

5. Do you know the content of a First Aid Box? Can you perform First Aid for bleeding, drowned, fractured, and poisoned patient?
Nigeria has the best academic curriculum in the world but the problem is the will to implement it.

Everyone is shouting non-performance of politicians, including teachers who only give our kids pseudo-education. Nigerians complained in the the 19th century that western education only increased the number of people that spoke and wrote while depleting those that were available to till the ground. This made Nigeria to evolve her curriculum toward technical. Outstanding Nigerian Doctors abroad are building and programming medical equipment - this is made possible through technology background at secondary school level. Mass Communication, fine art, nursing, physician, accounting, business management, hospitality and a wide range of other graduates are expected to use tools effectively.

Let us not create educated people that can speak grammar only.
Odfid Technical Center is in the process of bridging the gap between theory and practical in technical capacity of Nigerians. CALL US ON 07037263653

Who told you most children dont know some of these things even from basic 5? All those things you pointed out as unimportant are all part of the learning and acquiring of knowledge and skills. So it can never be ruled out.

During my time, after my secondary education I did a computer program before furthering in my education. And this was y2k period.

Everyone is wiser and know better than to strike out academical studies/learning.
