Why should I join Teach for Nigeria?
- According to UNICEF, over 58.3% of pupils in a school are not learning while nearly 50% of Grade 6 pupils cannot read at all.
- At the secondary school level, the historical academic performance of students, as measured by results from the West African Senior School Certificate Exams (WASSCE) shows that between 2008 and 2015, pass rates have not exceeded 40 per cent. These figures are alarming. They are giving the children little or no hope for a future with opportunities.
