Teachers and learning
By Idiche Charles, A World at School Global Youth Ambassador from Nigeria
I held an educational forum event at Niger Delta University in Nigeria on August 24, attended by 40 youths.
There were three topics covered:
Participation is you
I motivated the participants to get involved in the 500-day #EducationCountdown of the MDGs. I was able to pass on the message that their participation in the decision-making process of the educational sector in Nigeria is required to make the system better, to take the system from where it is now to where it ought to be. I was able to motivate them and prepare their minds to get involved in social change.
I prepared a survey designed to get participants’ views on better primary and secondary schools in terms of access and quality of learning. I got some very brilliant ideas too.
