This project examines the problems and prospects of education that is “The quality of Nigeria education” and economic development. Education is the bedrock of development. But unfortunately Education in Nigeria is bio-selected with myriads of problems. These include poor funding and thus poor educational infrastructures, inadequate classroom, teaching aids (projectors, computers, laboratories and libraries) paucity of quality teachers and poor/polluted learning environment. In addition to those inadequacies our school system is played with numerous social vices such as examination malpractices, cultism, hooliganism and corruption for meaningful development to take place in the educational sector. The government need to re-address the issue of funding private educational investors, teachers, parents/ guidance and students/ pupils need are orientation towards achieving goals of education. Also education must be made affordable for all and sundry.
The current monistic approach to knowledge acquisition must be changed. Technical education and innovation adaptation centers must be encourage and well funded. If this nation must move out of this present technological and scientific dependence. Government and the organized private sector must as well fund research programmes inventors an mass production of invented products.
