Education quality in Nigeria is affected by different and several factors and challenges that are within the context and system. The poor quality of education has lowered demand for education and led to poor academic performance. Children in Nigeria are failing to master basic literacy and numeracy skills (GMR 2010). Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, there were 10.5 million out-of-school children (aged 5-14) in Nigeria. Less than a third of primary school children will proceed to junior secondary school, and even fewer will then go on to complete secondary school. This accounts for more than one in five out-of-school children globally and more than half of out-of-school children in West and Central Africa. Most of these children (88%) are in the northern states where barriers to education include, poverty, socio-cultural norms and insecurity. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, and the closure of schools from March till October 2020 over 80 million children, youth and adult learners were left with limited opportunities for learning and even higher risk of dropping out and never returning to the education system. Learning opportunities for over 400,000 internally displaced children to access education has been further restricted.
