15 SES 13 B, Symposium Globalization, Policy And Agency I
There is a widened western educational gap between the north and south of Nigeria with the predominantly Muslim areas of the north lagging behind due to some historical antecedents. In the colonial era the British educational policy did not address the aspirations of the people leading to a clamour for change in the post-independence era resulting in the first indigenous National Policy on Education in 1977. Changes in terms of relevance of education and functionality have resulted in three revised editions of the national educational policy. This paper reviews the educational policy in the Federal Republic of Nigeria since 1944, highlighting specific issues on the disparity between educational policy and the implementation in context of the wider socio-economic and political development process. Most significantly, this is a case study of the peculiarity of educational policy development in a pluralistic society and developing country, with unity and developmental concerns.
