    Philosophy

    Education in its broadest sense provides the backdrop against whichdevelopment acquires its meaning. Nigerian governments are not oblivious ofthis critical need for balanced and sustainable human and national development.Hence the position which is clearly articulated in the National Policy onEducation, that any existing contradictions, ambiguities, and lack ofuniformity in educational practice in the different parts of the Federationshould be removed to facilitate an even orderly development of the country. TheNigeria of our collective dream is one that is free and democratic, just andegalitarian, united, strong and self-reliant; with a great and dynamic economy,and above all ,a land full of bright opportunities for all the citizens. Thesenational goals also underlie the philosophical ideas of Nigerian education, ofwhich Teacher Education is one concrete manifestation.
