In an update shared by VP Osinbajo earlier this morning 17th May 2019, he said:
The UNESCO Global Education Monitoring project says that learning with relevant education is the most important force for change.
The Learning Generation Report says the impact of education, reduces poverty, increases individual earnings reduces economic inequality and promotes economic growth.
The Federal Government has a three-fold plan to improve educational outcomes but more importantly, to train this generation of students to create and function in a knowledge driven economy.
To start with, we will be more focused on achieving the educational outcomes specified in the Sustainable Development Goals, such that we can meet the targets for school enrollment, quality of education, adult literacy and the quality of teaching by 2030.
We are redesigning our educational curriculum as part of our educational roadmap, which we have titled, "Every Child Counts".
It is quite clear that we have to change both the substance of education that our children receive, as well as the methods by which they are educated.
I shared this and more at the 23rd Convocation of the Lagos State University.
