It will soon be January again, some parents may be thinking of changing the schools of their wards, this post may prove useful to those category of parents who believe spending lavishly on education brings out the best in their child. It is important that you peruse this post and see the “best” schools in Nigeria. I call them the best because they have the facilities, the staff and the standards due to their high income!
For some years now, private educators are really doing a lot to provide standard and quality education for Nigerians. But the challenge here is, the better the school, the more expensive it will be. Looking at the poor and below-standard conditions of our public schools today, these private schools are getting much more patronage than one may ever imagine not minding the poor economic condition in the country. Once parents are able to afford any of the ones available, they do not hesitate to withdraw their kids from the public schools and instead enroll them in private schools.
But the major thing I want to point out in this article is that there are grades of private schools. While some parents are struggling to provide a few thousands to settle their children’s school fees, others are busy, splashing millions on theirs. It may not have crossed your widest imagination that there are secondary schools in Nigeria where tuition fees run in millions of Naira and thousands of US Dollars. These schools are exclusively meant for the rich, who are of course the only ones who can afford them.

What do you think about spending so much for a child’s education, especially in our country, considering the wide gap between the rich and the poor, and some other factors? Is it right after all or do you think it is sheer extravagance?
