JUST IN!!! President Tinubu Establishes National Education Data System

President Bola Tinubu has initiated the establishment of a National Education Data System (NEDS) as part of his comprehensive overhaul of Nigeria’s education sector.

Presidential spokesman Ajuri Ngelale said in a statement that the system aims to revolutionize educational data management, providing accurate, accessible, and real-time information to guide policy-making and interventions.

According to Ngelale, the NEDS will serve as a centralized repository for data on various aspects of the education sector, including school infrastructure, teacher profiles, and student demographics.

 

”There will be a dedicated portal/dashboard in the Federal Ministry of Education, offices of state governors, and local government chairpersons, which will host and disseminate this information for the federal government, states, and local governments to monitor in real time.

”This new data tracking architecture will enable the government to track the progress of students, thus having a clear data-driven mechanism for interventions, especially concerning out-of-school children, girls, and those with specific learning disabilities, among others,” the statement added.

Ngelale added: ”In his determined effort to enhance skill diversity in the education sector in order to effectively equip Nigerian students with the requisite skills, knowledge, and values to become functional and productive members of society, the President has also approved the National Skills Framework.

”The framework is designed to provide the appropriate skills for each level of education that will result in the empowering of generations of Nigerians with the required aptitude for the evolving needs of the global economy of the 21st century.

”This framework is expected to address skill gaps, quality of education, and unemployment concerns as students will acquire certain skill sets in addition to general knowledge.

”It is expected that once fully implemented, these programmes will succeed in resetting learning and connecting the ‘DOTS’ for significant improvement of the overall education system in Nigeria, in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Tinubu.”
