Is Schooling Up to The Tertiary Level Important In Nigeria As It Used To Be?? by Educonomist: 9:36am On Oct 17
Looking at Nigeria can one really say schooling upto the Tertiary level is  important.

  One of the major reasons for going to the Higher institution is be useful to yourself and d society through d impaction of the mental and practical skills acquired in the University, Poly or Coll of Edu to the society, likewise those who decided not to attain d Tertiary Education but d Non Formal Education ( Learning of skills, Trade etc ).

So, considering the Nigeria factors, a graduate of a particular Discipline or Profession who ends up doing other things apart from what He/She studied in School just wasted the years and resources spent in becoming a graduate not because he's doing other things as means of living but because that person didn't utilize what He/She was trained for in the Higher institution, but this is Nigeria anything goes!!! a graduate of pharmacy doing a Bank job, graduate of Engineering teaching in a secondary school, a graduate of law who engages in Commercial Transportation etc  and other graduates who ended up learning Tailoring, Barbing, Shoe making amongst others in order to survive just wasted their years in the Tertiary institution.

Is it not a total waste of time, If your major reason for going to school is be called a graduate and ends up doing things apart from what you studied, wouldn't it be better if that person maybe after secondary School decided in learning any skills or trade outside the four walls of Higher institution... with these can one really say attaining Tertiary Education in Nigeria is important as it used to be in the 70s, 80s n 90s?? Gone are the days that going to School makes one rich, although it favors some people

PS: A graduate of a Tertiary institution(Formal Education) isn't better than anyone who decided to attain the Non Formal Education... There's a difference between Education n Schooling

while going to school doesn't guarantee getting a job it still gives you a high prospect and fit you better into the society.

There is a mistake our generation make by equating acquiring education to acquiring wealth... everybody can be rich through whatsoever means, but good education help one sustain it.
people believe Education is scam because they believe if I get education I must be rich...

Ehn? Say God.

It's not a waste of time. Every one has a choice and the choices they make affect them either positively or negatively. See, only if you know the will of God concerning your life will you enjoy the benefit of the choice you make. Many of the so called graduates don't really know what they are destined for. They do follow-follow and window shopping.

But wait ooo, if you know your talent, it will go a long way in helping you choose wisely
