    Is Acquiring a degree a waste of time in Nigeria

    Degree

    There have been an ongoing debate as to why school is a waste of time, and how much we actually really need formal schooling for so many years of our life. Many people still strongly believe in the traditional view, that school is a vital part of becoming successful in the future and learning basic skills, while some believe that the school system is flawed, and that it doesn’t teach children necessary life skills. They argue that school teaches children things that aren’t related to their futures, and does not prepare them for their career of choice.

    However, many young students feel as though they take classes that they are uninterested in, and have no benefit for them in the long run, as everyone has different goals, passions and career paths. People are starting to focus attention more on  learning more concrete life skills, which for most part, are not believed to be taught in the classroom.

    On the other hand, it has also been believed traditionally that the only way to properly educate our children is through the standard classroom method. This include having a teacher speaking in front of the students, covering a wide variety of the most fundamental topics such as math, science and English Language. It also means attending school five days a week for most of the day, which is similar to a full-time job, where assignments and homework are giving outside the designated school hours as well.

    After all these procedures of Education, graduate will still find it difficult to get a job. Some will still go ahead for their masters or PhD at the end they will still find themselves without job. The question now is, should the less privileged person just go and acquire a skill? or do you think acquiring a degree is a waste of time in Nigeria?
