Stakeholders Conversed For Development Plans That Would Encourage Boy Child Education In South East

Statistics of late shows they there is sharp decrease in the number of boy-child enrollment in secondaries and tertiary institutions in the south eastern part of Nigeria due to improper planning of government and discouragement by the youths to go into business than furthering their education.
Measures have been put in place to correct this defect, yet its response upgrade is at the lower ebb, while many are opinion that government should adopt new social eco-development approach that would take the studies to the pupils at their various places of doing business.

It is no longer news that there is sharp decline in the number of boy-child school enrollment in the south east of Nigeria after the nation’s civil war that ended in 1970.
The general perception of most parents are not far fetch from the nation economy woes, where most graduates are seen ramming about the cities in search of jobs, while most youths have taken to massive rural to urban migration for greener pastures.
These stakeholders posit solutions that should be adopted if the country needs to regain the trust for its educational sector growth in all the regions of the country.
They called on government and private institutions to devolve the idea of playing down on non-educational thoughts as alternatives to wealth creation.
Some were also of the opinion that compulsory equal education should be introduced, with the near free qualitative educational provision, fully subsidized by the government to ensure every Nigerian child has compulsory education to their credit.
The conspicuous boy child educational decline could also be abridged, if government would introduce programme that would self sustain the student as employers of labour than shunning out labour seekers every year, without corresponding jobs that would absolve the youths.
