INFRASTRUCTURE DEFICITS IN THE NATIONS OF SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA AND THE PROFOUND NEGATIVE EFFECTS ON EDUCATION
There is a strong correlation between infrastructure and development in any nation. Poor infrastructure has, unfortunately, been the hallmark of most of the nations of Sub-Saharan Africa. Very little attention has been paid to the building of the infrastructure of these nations after they attained independence from the European colonial masters. This neglect has contributed significantly to the poverty of these nations.
Most of the leaders of the nations of Sub-Saharan Africa would rather pillage the treasuries of their nations, fatten their overseas bank accounts and multiply their private aircrafts and other ephemeral possessions than take care of millions of their impoverished citizens.
No malfeasance by the leaders of Sub-Saharan Africa has resulted in, and continues to produce more irreparable damage to the essence of the “being” of the people of these nations than the collapse of their educational institutions at all levels. This calamity may be the greatest impediment to elevating many of these nations from the “bottom billion.” Why is that? Because the absence of quality education and the prominence of mis-education constitute permanent roadblocks to the maturation and attainment of the full potential of that unique gift of nature, the human brain.
Below is the link to the article titled: How Bright Is Africa's Future by Geoff Hill, distinguished author, journalist and former African Bureau Chief for The Washington Times.
The article is as touching and revealing ass much as its sadness. Sub-Saharan Africa certainly needs a new generation of selfless, visionary patriots. Hopefully we will find them among the children.
UPDATE ON PACAW, Inc. TEACHERS: POSTED APRIL 6, 2016.
In 2015, one PACAW, Inc. teacher in the primary school was dismissed because of lack of truthfulness. During a long absence from work, at which time she continued to draw her pay, both she and her family failed to respond to multiple requests for reasons for her absence. These requests included evidence of hospitalization or any illness requiring frequent visits to a doctor. There was complete silence from her and her family. Hence, she was terminated, and the position has been filled.
In the secondary school, two teachers left for jobs in other states, one in Lagos, the commercial capital of Nigeria and the other in Plateau state. They both performed well as PACAW, Inc. teachers and we wish them the very best in their future endeavors. Both positions were also filled.
