At Tekedia Institute, we admire those doing amazing things. Joshua Chukwu is a teacher in Ogun State, Nigeria, where he works to educate the next generation of our continent. Joshua received a full scholarship from the Institute, and is sharing a capstone, a critical part of his learning, with the public. His work is titled “The Impact of Covid-19 On Rural Education in Nigeria: The Role of Private Sectors”. You can download it here.
The covid’19 pandemic has revealed the dearth in Nigeria’s education system, most especially rural education. Children in rural education account for over 60% of the school children in Nigeria. If education at the grass root is not given maximum attention it becomes difficult for any developmental strides to be recorded. The role of private sectors in making up for the lapse of government and ensuring that children in low-income communities continue to learn cannot be overemphasized. The private sectors through various NGOs continue to do so much for rural education in Nigeria. More private sectors need to come on board and join in providing support for children in low-income communities to continue to learn.
Capstones are like university themed final year projects’ within Tekedia Mini-MBA but delivered via our Certificate program. Most times, members work on company related assignments with guidance from our Faculty.
Many companies including Symplifx have turned their capstones into ventures, raising millions of naira in the process. One is an assistant to the governor of Anambra state. It is a powerful tool: you take time, think over the business, and design a framework based on all that you have learnt, to advance the company. Then send it to your boss; promotions follow, most times!
Congrats Joshua, and thanks for approving for it to be shared publicly. Teachers always share!---
