2015 (Q3) Discuss eight (8) factors responsible for the character and development of education of a nation

    • Historical factor: The educational outlook and growth of a people cannot be disassociated with their historical experience. A people with a history of constant wars may focus on the acquisition of military skills whereas a people with a history of productive enterprise and rich trading activities may train for acquisition of many skills.
    • Economic factor: The economy usually supports the education, and education usually supports the economy. A wealthy nation can encourage educational development. If a country so wish, it can pursue any educational programme with its wealth.

The economy of a nation determines her wealth or level of poverty. Some countries such as America and Japan are wealthy because of their technological growth while Germany and Sweden are economically buoyant because of their industrial growth. Some other nations are wealthy because of their strategic positions for international trade, e.g. Greece. Nigeria is a rich nation in Africa because of her crude oil. (PDE 720 P122)
