The section of this website/blog covers educating articles and information which our editorial team takes time to research. This is intended to increase knowledge from place to place among any interested reader. In Nigeria for example, many people lack information because we don’t have the zeal to read from our books on what our lecturers and teachers teaches in our schools maybe because we are too busy with one activities or the other or maybe we are spending too much time on socials networks and television, so we spend little or no time with our books. But with the information posted on this educational section which appears on the internet, it creates an avenue for everyone to get some of this educating information along-side their social networks. We have sorted and arranged different articles depending on the departments, provided a search area to enable any reader find the desired information.

Education is a general idea that differs from society to society. What is regarded as educative in one society may not be so in another society. Education is normative word and normative words are both explanatory and evaluative. They suggest that the concepts are meaningful and advantageous. Education is what makes a man eagerly pursue the ideal excellence of citizenship, and teachers how rightly to rule and how to obey. In effect, that one is a trained medical doctor, lecturer; trader etc does not make him an educated man. For such a man to be regarded as educated, he must be virtuous that is he must be good, he must be an ideal citizen. Plato’s definition agrees with that of traditional African society in its emphasis on character development as the most important man. A priest who embezzled church funds is not an educated person.

From our own research, MARTINS LIBRARY defines education as the process of transmitting, preserving, developing and advancing the culture of a people of Nigeria. A process of acculturation through which the individual is helped to attain the development of his potentiality, and his maximum actuation when necessary according to the right reason, and to achieve his perfect self and fulfillment.   

There Are Main Component of Indigenous Educations About A Nigerian Child.

It implies that indigenous education is employable except for the lazy ones.

He is made to know behaviors which attract moral lapses and deviations from the norm. Behaviors, such like fornication adultery, thief, insubordination, poising, attract special punishment.
