EDUCATION, DEVELOPMENT AND EMPOWERMENT
(Established Views)
 ….education is a pre-condition for the emancipation of the
individuals from ignorance, poverty and human slavery and for
economic empowerment. Lynch (1997).
 education is an instrument for changing traditional attitudes,
beliefs and practices that are inimical to human and rational
development.Fagerlind and Saha (1989).
 Browne and Barret (1991) and Hoeck (1997) found that “ basic
education significantly correlate with improved living standard,
reduced infertility, reduced maternal and child mortality, reduced
early marriage, which is common in developing countries and
improved hygienic and nutritional awareness and practice “
 Many studies have constantly shown that acquisition of
education have varying poverty reducing potentials.
According to Colclough, (2009),” education helps people
to become more productive, have higher earnings and
avoid poverty“
 Psacharopoulos and Patrinos (2004) found a strong
correlation between progressions in educational levels and
wage returns. The study showed that internationally, one
additional year of education adds approximately 10% to a
person’s wage at the mean of the distribution.

7 FACTS FROM THE DATA
FACT 1
 There are 374 Public Primary Schools in Yewa
representing 26% of Public Primary Schools in Ogun
State (1436).
 Population of eligible primary school students (Ages 6
– 11) in Yewa is approximately 169,432, while the total
state population of Ages 6-11 is approximately 699,674.
This represents 24.22%.
 We can safely conclude that Yewa has a fair share of
public primary schools in Ogun State.
*Assumption: 30% increase in population between 2006 to date
FACT 2
 The total number of approved private primary schools
in Yewa is 241 out of Ogun State’s total of 1694.
 This represents 14.23%.
 Relative to population figure, (See Fact 1)Yewa needs
to establish more private primary schools.
FACT 3
 Total number of public secondary schools in Yewa is
115 out of Ogun State’s total of 474.
 Representing 24.26%.
 Population of eligible secondary school students in
Yewa (Ages 12-18) is approximately 162,741, while Ogun
State figure is 722,974. This represents 22.51%.
 We can safely conclude that Yewa has a fair share of
public secondary schools in Ogun State.
FACT 4
 There are 434 approved private secondary schools in Ogun
State.
 Yewa has a total of 50 representing 11.52%.
 With the population of eligible students in Yewa relative to
the entire state i.e 22.51% (Fact 3), the number of private
secondary schools in Yewa is rather small.
 Quality Education can only be achieved by encouraging
investments in private secondary schools.
FACT 5
 Total enrolment into primary school at Yewa is 147,919
out of eligible primary School student (Ages 6-11) of
approximately 169,432.
 This represent 87.30%.
 This is good report which shows that the MDG is
attainable in Yewaland.
FACT 6
 Total enrolment into secondary school at Yewa (Public
& Private)is 86,549 out of the eligible secondary school
student (Ages 12-18)of approximately 162.741.
 This represents about 53.18%.
 This shows that dropout rate after primary school is
significantly high and over almost 46% of eligible
secondary school students are out of school.
FACT 7
 Except Ado Odo/Ota which cannot be wholly
classified as Yewaland, there is no privately owned
University or Polytechnic in Yewa.
WHERE ARE THE DROP-OUTS?
RIDING OKADA
HAWKING
SMUGGING (FAYAWO)
WORKING ON FARMS
SIMPLY WASTING AWAY
OTHER CHALLENGES
 Infrastructural Decay
 Lack of Teaching/Learning Materials
 Overstretched Teaching Capacity
 Poor Education Quality
 Frequent Disruption to Academic Progress
 Lack of Training for teaching staff
 Poor motivation for teaching staff
 Politically induced Educational Disparity
WAY FORWARD – (My view)
1. Private initiative to get all eligible students back to
class.
This can be achieved through: Sustained public enlightenment campaign
 Development of existing school infrastructures
 Encouraging the establishment of private institutions.
2. Private initiatives to combat drop-out rates through:
 Scholarship initiatives for educationally gifted.
 Privately funded education counseling units in select
schools.
3. A case for privately funded Yewa model schools.
4. Mobilising Ogun State government to sustain
fundings for Yewa schools.
