I went on to YouTube to watch a few videos to learn about how to perfectly use my Samsung m31s camera quite well and basically I have learnt a lot. In the world we're heading Into people with skillset will definitely be able to add more value we're heading into a more practical world and know-how's are knowledges that would sell even better in the future.
Now I have one issue, nowadays people are learning skills more on the internet more than they're learning from schools, colleges and even varsities. Africa has some of the best universities in the world but then you don't don't find high end productivity from even these so called graduates who has MSC's BSC's and even PHD. I have once talked about how bureaucracy is the problem of Africa.
While there's an economic stance that equates education with being knowledgeable and innovative people have taken to university degrees to rather stay in the comfort of offices and air conditions even if these opportunities are in the ratio of ten to one thousand university or polytechnic graduates.
In essence it's important that people are financially educated. While people learn theoretically how to be entepreneurs they're never shown what it means to be entepreneurs and that is why it's difficult to build dependency skills on one's skillsets. The ironic thing is that university degrees are so expensive but some of the things you'll learn there are even free on places like YouTube.
Take it from me, education is a fantastic legacy, but it's purely meant to expose you to knowledge of which might or might not financially benefit you and that's why I think it shouldn't really be expensive. Look at the world currently most people owe student debts from university degrees they have and they're tied to these debts paying it all their lives.
They become debt slaves whether they have jobs or not and this makes it difficult to them to live their financial lives without always having to prune it to paying debts for a long time. Truth is there's a competition for education in the world despite that it's end product doesn't guarantee you the means to be financially free or gainfully employed.
Truth is, teachers are underpaid but education in itself is expensive so where does all this money go to? The administrators? The government? Wo spends the outrageous student loans that are being paid by students constantly?. In Nigeria, there's hardly student loan this makes education to be a "pay as you go" thing.
Nevertheless some state universities and colleges and private are so expensive. The amount you'll pay in four to six is too excruciating but because people are willing to pay anything for a degree, less people are willing to invest money to learn a skill or go develop themselves in the labour market. This forces education to be expensive because it's in demand and the forces of demand and supply will eventually make it even more expensive in the future.
Some of the Chinese in Nigeria that are constructing the Nigerian railway tracks hardly have university degrees but they always cement contract deals worth billions of Nigerian naira because they have the skills and the technical know-how.
They're supervisor to even Nigerian graduates who only studied technical course in school but do not really know the onus of that work. It's ironical that the Nigerian president doesn't even have a university degree or any equivalent college degrees but he's considered fit to lead people with cargos and cargo loads of degree, why is this? This is because he's accrued political skills and that skillset is somewhat considered better than learning how to govern in a tertiary institution.
Nevertheless it's a irony that will continue to baffle me. People without degrees are not given opportunities, they have to carve it out themselves. Yet, it's illogical that people pay so much to be educated and they end up not utilising their degrees for anything. I mean where are all the billions being put into the federal, state and private pockets? How is the accountability towards these money.
When can't education be virtually affordable so that even if it isn't lucrative it wouldn't be a no-brainer? But no! Education worldwide is virtually expensive even when the skillsets taught are given for nearly nothing on some online courses. However I feel the demand for education needs to reduce before we can have cheap and affordable education system worldwide. But the discrimination between skills and degree needs to end as we even more need the later to create more individualistic innovations going forward.
