Darleana McHenry's insight:

Most students in other countries do not realize that Americans pay for post secondary education via student loans. We don't have free University access. It is ironic because we give aid to developing countries so students can access University for free and our own taxpayers bear the burden.

ABUJA—Minister of State for Education, Chief Nyesom Wike, yesterday, said Nigeria’s adult illiterates have increased from 25 million in 1997 to 35 million in 2013.

Wike stated this at a ministerial briefing to commemorate the 2013 International Literacy Day themed “Literacy for 21st century.”

He said Nigeria had over 10.5 million children out of school which, according to him, is embarrassing to the nation.

He said: “Indeed, the embarrassing literacy statistics on Nigeria, justifies the need for all stakeholders to redouble their efforts.

“The current Education for All, EFA, Global Monitoring report ranks Nigeria as one of the countries with the highest level of illiteracy.

“The report on Nigeria stated that the number of illiterate adults has increased by 10 million over the past two decades, to reach 35 million.

Grades do not reduce the potential of a student to a set of measurements, but rather, encourage a desire to strive for excellence, and a higher standard of behavior, when used to motivate.

We should all focus on character development, students, parents, schools, religous organizations and community. Teach children to treat people the way that they want to be treated.
