THE ROLE OF THE WORLD BANK IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF PRIMARY EDUCATION IN NIGERIA

Abstract:

The research reveals an interesting pattern about the distribution of educational services in the country. The research did reveal an encouraging upward surge towards getting more pupils in school as compared to the previous years. The retention rate of all pupils and increasing enrolment of child, reveal indication of narrating gender disparity in the education of children in previous years. At the same time, the research also reveals a picture of uneven pattern of enrolment distribution weighted heavily in favour of urban settlements. This has consequences, in that education continues to be out of reach of many of many children in the rural settlements. Primary education is grossly under-funded with little attention being paid to the conditions of the classrooms, teachers’ welfare or instructional materials. This coupled with an increasing large enrolment serve to over-stretch the little resources available and entrench a sub-medicare quality to the provision of primary education. While it is often too easy to blame lack of funding and infrastuctural facilities, it should be pointed out that current economic crunch makes any investment in education worthwhile only if the dividend are worth it. Keeping a child in schooling system learning concepts that may have little to do with his everyday reality, may seem to be a little encouragement to make parents invest in the future of their children through massive enrolment. vii
