Public lecture on easy funding of children’s education holds in Lagos


EDUCATION advocates and SmartCareers are sponsoring a public lecture as part of their contribution to the conversation that will help to resolve the challenges afflicting the education industry in Nigeria.

According to the organisers, the event will hold at MAN Event Centre, 5 Elewura Street, Wemabod Estate. Off Adeniyi Jones Avenue, Ikeja, Lagos, Saturday, May 19.

Hence, they want parents and guardians to attend so as to know how to fund their children’s education (from nursery to university) with ease and guarantee their excellent academic performance at a free public lecture.

The organisers reasoned: “Access to good quality education in Nigeria should not drive a parent into depression, debt, and continuous stress. Education is considered a human right, and social good, which simply means access to good and quality education, should be at less / no cost at all.

“The general notion is that only well-furnished and highly built private schools can deliver quality education simply because their rate is high. Research have shown that parent do not have the right professional guidance to help them make decisions about their wards education.

“Research has also shown that school fees consumes up to 90% of parents income. For some others, the entire family income is not up to 50% of the money they need to pay school fees.

“In the United States of America, college students fund their education to the level of about 65% through their own income, savings, scholarships, grants, and loans. In Britain, parents do not have to save to guarantee good quality education for their children, students can pick up all their education bills through scholarships, grants, loans and income from part time work, while they attend their Ivy League college, Oxford, Cambridge and the likes. In some Scandinavian countries, education up to doctoral level is virtually free; students are paid salaries in addition to undertaking their doctoral research free.

“But here, parents are made to pay tuition fee through tooth and nail for music, dance, karate, bead making classes their children will not find useful in the management of their careers.”
