Osibanjo Challenges Administrative leaders on Education to  Enhance their Curriculum For Youths development

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is challenging administrative leaders in education  to create an effective teaching curricula that will  enhance their curriculum for youth development and problem solving to reflect advancements in the current values and ethics in the society.
Speaking on this subject while inaugurating the 65th Annual Meeting of the  the West African Examination Council (WAEC)  in Abuja yesterday, he said this has become imperative as societal values are in comatose.

According to him, “When a value in the society is  eroded, the function of an educator or policy maker is completely different. When values are maintained by and large, what we find is that we are almost pretending that values are still where they are because the way policy makers, the way they are still teaching is as if values are still where they are but that’s not the case as you and I know, referring to one  Leadership Newspaper.
“So it’s a challenge for our generation and time for our educators and policy makers to set a moral and ethical standard that will define and emphasize integrity, and what it means to be successful even if it means developing a curricular that will include planning, organization and work ethics.”
Osinbajo challenged educators to break from what he described as the false notion that success is attainable by miracle and not hard work, the source reiterates.
He questioned what it means to be educated.” We are no longer concerned with the means of attaining success. The end appears to justify the means which explains why cheating in exams and fake certificate do not generate the sort of outrage that such conduct would have generated many years ago.”
Noting the views of one of the speakers in the event,“Often cheating is with the collusion of parents and teachers . This only reflects the larger failures of values in our society. Public servants and men in the private sectors who have unexplained phenomenal wealth are often celebrated in one form or the other; alumni recognition, honorary degrees, chieftaincy title and even high religious titles.”
According to the vice president, when values in the society is eroded, it sets in a challenging role to the educator or policy maker. “When values are maintained by and large, what we find is that we are almost pretending that values are still where they are because the way policy makers, the way they are still teaching is as if values are still where they are but that’s not the case as you and I know.
“So it’s a challenge of our generation and time for our educators and policy makers to set a moral and ethical standard that will define and emphasize integrity, and what it means to be successful even if it means developing a curricular that will address all that,”the source reiterated.
