Nigeria Needs To Learn From China On Education, Says Fasehun
He made the call on Thursday in Lagos, during his investiture with the ‘Most Outstanding African Man of The Year Award’, bestowed on him by the West African Students’ Union (WASU).
Fasehun noted that the future of any nation is a function of its youth population, stressing that for any nation to occupy a commendable position in the comity of nations, it must invest in the training of its youth. He added that such a nation must take more than a casual responsibility for the training of the youth, like most civilised nations have done.
According to him, youths serve as the building blocks for the character, shape and development of nations; little wonder a country like China takes absolute responsibility for the comprehensive training of its youths from age two.
“Education in China is a government-run system of public education supervised by the country’s Ministry of Education. All Chinese children must attend school for at least nine years, funded free-of-charge by the government.
