Abstract


This work is an attempt to understand the seeming inability of the Nigerian nation to develop itself on a number of fronts and points to the fact that the major challenge to development in Nigeria is the dwindling standard of education. An educational system that is, to all intents and purposes, bereft of direction and focus, as it is neither culturally contextual nor relevant. Such a system can only lead to breeding corruption among the younger generation leading to greater inability to develop. Various causes are identified along with the likely implications for us as a nation.

Keywords: Educational standard, Corruption, Development.
